"PROBABLY THE WORST THING I EVER DID"

I hate to go out to dinner, period! I had a million excuses.
The food's no good. The food's good, but over-priced. The
food's o.k., but the place is too far. The food and music are
lousy. The service is horrible. Last week I ran out of excuses."

Wendy Shapero: Flying
High In Her Dance Shoes

FIND IT

L

IN THE

ANT

his weekend, 18-year-
old Wendy Shapero of
West Bloomfield will
make her first appearance
with the Michigan Opera
Theatre when she flies solo
(for about 30 seconds) as the
Witch's double in Hansel
and Gretel. She'll also play
one of the two flying angels
in the show.
Jeffrey Bruce, celebrity
make-up artist and occa-
sional guest host on "Kelly
and Co.," will perform the
role of the Witch. The show
runs Nov. 25 through Dec. 3
at the Masonic Temple.
It marks Shapero's second
professional dance produc-
tion; she performed this year
as a soloist in the Interna-
tional Institute of Detroit's
A Celebration of the French
Revolution.
When Hansel and Gretel
closes, Shapero will leap and
glide from Detroit to Royal
Oak where she'll play Clara,
the lead in The Nutcracker,
Dec. 15 at Oakland Com-
munity College.
The 5'2" strawberry
blonde has been performing
on stage for more than 15
years.
"I was 3 years old when
my parents packaged me up
for a long, yet awaited
journey to Royal Oak," she
said. "The package included
me, a purple leotard, pink
tights, a pink ballet box and
minute slippers made from
leather. With buttons and
bows, I was setting out to
pursue a blistery-feet ca-
reer."
Today, Shapero, a 1989
graduate from Birmingham
Groves High School, now a
freshman at Oakland Com-
munity College, is a dance
instructor as well as a stu-
dent at her mentor's studio
in Royal Oak.
"I teach jazz, tap and
theater dance at Rose Marie
Floyd's studio, and I think
teaching is very rewarding,"
Shapero said. "Rose Marie
Floyd was my real inspira-
tion. For the past 15 years,
I've studied with -her; the
studio has been my second
home."
Shapero's mentor also
thinks highly of her
student's dancing.
"She has a lot of innate
talent, a lot of sparkle and
interprets very well," said
Floyd, who has taught for
more than 30 years. "Wendy
is a very good student with

so much imagination.
Because of her enthusiasm,
she works hard and is
motivated to progress and
achieve. You have to have
desire before you can suc-
ceed in anything, and she
has that desire and willing-
ness to work hard."
Shapero hopes to one day
fly high enough to reach her
dream role —Peter Pan.
"When I did A Midsummer
Night's Dream, there was a
man from the Joffrey Ballet
who made a guest ap-
pearance in the production.
And he said to me, 'Get to
New York; audition for
everything you possibly can
and who knows, maybe
they'll revise Peter Pan just
for you someday.' That role
would be wonderful."
Shapero said she espe-
cially admires a certain
dancer and well-known
Hollywood actress.
"Shirley MacLaine is a
dancer who inspired me.
She's just a multi-faceted
talent. She can dance, sing
and act," Shapero said.
At a local performance last
summer, Shapero did a piece
.MacLaine had danced in the
Broadway musical Sweet
Charity.
Shapero also wants to
broaden her horizons in the
performing arts beyond dan-
cing. So for the past two
years, she has been studying
voice with soprano Edith
Diggory and acting with
Actor's Alliance Theater.
She recently took part in a
one-day seminar given by
Los Angeles casting director
Michael Fenton.
"One of my main goals is
to be a triple threat (the abil-
ity to sing, dance and act
professionally)," she said. "If
you're a triple threat, it
