Some agree that Copland’s best works were his scores for ballets. He composed scores for a number of ballets, including two of the most popular of the time: “Agnes DeMille’s Rodeo” (1942) and Martha Graham’s “Appalachian Spring” (1944), for which he won the Pulitzer Prize.

The Greek “cousin” (Fran Jeffries) sings “Meglio Stasera” with her eyes staring through the camera and at the audience in most time of the dance, in additional, the background figures were all sitting properly on the sofa watching her performance by following her dance steps just as if they are audience like we do.

Honestly I really can't sum my life up only on one page but I’ll do my best. I love to laugh and have a good time, I'm usually smiling and if I’m not, most likely something’s wrong. I laugh over the littlest and stupidest things.
