Gymnastics and Dancing! Drums and Piano! Singing in Russian and English! Hard to imagine a performing skill which was missed during our annual Talent Show! 

We couldn't be more proud to tell you how talented the kids are! The variety of performances and costumes was amazing. 

Teachers' imagination and patience as well as parents' creativity and participation helped to make this show a great success: almost 50 acts in 2 hours!

 Thanks to all for making it a great Talent Show!

"Dear Parents! There are no doubts that the Talent Show 2010 was a blast!  
I think that the name we’ve chosen for that event – Talent Show – is exactly what it was: children, teachers and parents had shown off their unique talents and everyone truly enjoyed it!

We have received a very positive feed back from parents and guests who had been at the show. The description words we mostly heard were “amazing!”, “wonderful!”, “hard to believe it’s performed by elementary school age kids”, “very well arranged and staged”.
Thank you for your appreciation!
