This Mass For The Ballet is inspired by one of Mr. Alexander’s dance students, part of TheEdwardMorgan Outreach Program. She came up to him in class and said, “I will be late for rehearsal tomorrow because I’m moving into a homeless shelter.” Mr. Alexander recalls that he was actually in shock when the little girl said this to him. He conferred with Edward Morgan who responded by saying the little girl is very talented and mentally stable; his advice was that if she weren’t treated the same as everyone else, she wouldn’t be happy. “So I was afraid,” said Mr. Alexander, “but I turned around and said, ‘DON’T BE LATE!’ And the little girl looked at me and said, ‘Oh don’t worry Mr. Alexander, I already told my mama that we need to move early so we won’t be late!’” Not only did she do a great performance, but she was not late for rehearsal and her excitement and enthusiasm for the program blew Mr. Alexander away.
