THE RIVER DANCERS.
Have you ever seen Thomas Thomason dance?
He is one of the most amazing dancers in all of Triflora. He dances with the River People these days but he has always been on those two feet and nodding his head to the music. When he was a baby he had little fat legs and wore dresses most of the time. He didn’t talk. He just ‘Danced”. I was going to get Thomas to talk to you tonight but he is TIRED – Dancers do get tired , you know.
Thomas Thomason’s big sister is also a very good dancer. Her name is Tamara Thomason. She doesn’t dance as well as Thomas – mostly because she will not ever dance without her umbrella.
Thomas Thomason is not a baby anymore. He is 10 years old. He invents his own dances and writes his own music.
Sometimes he lets Tamara dance with her umbrella – but not very often.
Thomas Thomason likes to look very smart for his dancing. He has invented a dance about a fancy picnic. Thomas has a black suit to wear for his dance and a pair of black tap shoes which are so comfortable that its almost like dancing bare-footed with stones glued to the bottom of your feet.
Thomas stands with the straightest back I have ever seen.
For his Picnic Dance he carries a basket filled with beautiful food which he throws to the audience.
Tamara is allowed to dance in the Picnic Dance because an umbrella is a good idea at a Picnic.
Thomas Thomason calls the dance;
THE DANCE OF TAMARA’S PICNIC.
