Ladder to the Moon is an abstract painting by Georgia O'Keeffe in 1958. It was an interpretation of items found on the roof of her own house.  Ladder to the Moon inspires us to be imaginative, creative, and to keep looking up!


Our 2023 Little Dancers Segment is inspired by Bob Ross.    Bob Ross inspires us to see beauty everywhere and celebrate the beautiful world around us!  Enjoy performances by our happy little trees, skies, sunshines, and rivers as we complete a Bob Ross painting of dance together during our performance!
