Drive-in dance recital lets a little bit of normal get back on stage

The Hinsdale Dance Academy held their eighth annual dance recital as a socially distanced drive-in theater in July. Through eight performances over two days the performers were kept apart on stage and off. Parents and friends watched from cars or on lawn chairs near the parking lot. Annie Gustafson dances to "White Swan Variation" and Harlow Abbott performs to "Come Fly with Me." Isaac Hummer gets a "balcony" seat thanks to his dad Ben. Valerie and Patrick Simon, with Sophie, record the performance of their other daughter Celia. (Jim Slonoff photos)
