JOHANNESBURG - Cinderella on Ice was a spectacular show.
The dancers’ moves were out of this world.
When the men lifted the girls up into the air, I thought they would fall but it didn’t happen; my mind was blown.
Sometimes I saw the ice leaping off their snow-white skates.
As they whizzed through the frosty air, my eyes caught the sight of their sparkling, glamorous costumes, which dazzled in the twinkling, bright lights.
When I saw Cinderella’s short dress my eyes were as big as pizzas.
I think that was the prettiest dress I’ve ever seen.
Their spins were as fast as cheetahs. I was scared they would fall after spinning, but they didn’t. When they spun around, I felt queasy.
I wish I could watch Cinderella on Ice one hundred more times.
That was the best show ever and I would recommend that you go and watch it with your children and friends.
* Cinderella on Ice is at Montecasino in Johannesburg from 1 December 2017 – 6 January 2018.
