billy1It was sneak peek time at the Bushnell Tuesday when Java got an “up close and personal” backstage look at dancers getting ready for opening night of the theater’s production of “Billy Elliot.”

They might look like kids but trust me, they are not only professionals on stage, but also when it came time to warm up and get ready for their on-stage acting and dancing.  

The girls call themselves “Ballet Girls,” and the guys…well just guys.

They come from all over the country, travel with the show and say they love it all.

If  you are going to the show which runs through Sunday, you will surely be impressed!
