From Rochester to Rochester


On July 30, we made the long drive from Rochester, MI to Rochester, NY-- one of the longest drives of our entire two month journey. We had a 5:30 PM class in Rochester at the Hochstein School of Music and Dance.

The school is located in an attractive brick building in downtown Rochester. The students are serious and dedicated and they took class in a beautiful studio framed by large windows. The school is quite impressive, and we had the opportunity to look at the performance hall and talk about ballet for a short time before class began. At this class we had an accompanist and I was able to give up my CD pushing duties for one day.

After class we were directed to the nearest Chinese buffet, and then we got back in the car for a drive to Utica, NY. Thank you to everyone at Hochstein for making this such a great experience.
