❤ may we practice gratitude to/with ourselves for what we have in life. May we demonstrate gratitude, even for simple things in the community, at work, at home. And may we especially be enthusiastically thankful for the giving gestures from the children in our lives.

some interesting dance history in honor of the day.

Yvonne Chouteau, Rosella Hightower, Moscelyne Larkin, and Maria and Marjorie Tallchief: the five Oklahoma ballerinas of Native American heritage who commanded the world of international ballet during the 20th century. They were known as The Five Moons. Maria Tallchief, Marjorie Tallchief, and Rosella Hightower are also ABT Legends! Today, in celebration and observance of , we recognize the achievements of these five women, and the struggles they faced, and their successes.

The group came to be known as the Five Moons after the title of commemorative statues of them that were created in Oklahoma. Even at the end of their artistic careers, they remained poised in the hearts and minds of the ballet world, admired for their strength, fortitude, and unmatched talent. Their courage, passion and perseverance propelled them to perform on the world’s greatest stages and leave a lasting mark on the dance world.

In August 2021, the legendary ballerinas were honored by the University of Oklahoma School of Dance in the first annual Five Moons Dance Festival. OU Dance
