A mother and daughter team co-direct the Dance Ensemble and the Drama Ensemble at Fishweir Elementary School of the Performing Arts and recently led student performances to rave reviews. The Fishweir Elementary Dance Ensemble began in 1998 under the direction of Cecelia Futo, along with 11 dancers (10 girls and one boy) and a $50 donation from Futo’s mother. The department grew steadily over the next decade and Futo’s daughter Claire joined the team in 2008. In addition to managing the Dance Ensemble, Futo began teaching drama in 2011.  Romeo and Juliet, a condensed version of William Shakespeare’s original play, and The Sleeping Beauty Ballet were presented to sold-out houses on May 30-31.
