Charlie was our studio therapy dog, both an emotional support and friend to all at Express Yourself. With great pleasure and a wagging tale, he welcomed kids that may have been hesitant to come into the studio for the first time. “Where’s Charlie.” was sometimes the first greeting we heard. As the official greeter he welcomed VIPS including Senator Joan Lovely, Blue Man Group, STOMP and special guest artists.
As kids gathered their chairs for their circle he would walk around and greet each and every one. He was very patient as he was fitted for Halloween costumes, birthday party hats and other artistic whims that made people laugh. Charlie has appeared in several productions as part of the cast on the Wang Center Stage in photo montages and process films- always getting a great round of applause.
On weekends Charlie was a Middlebury Men’s Soccer Fan and never missed a game. He was a loveable sweet guy that we will never forget. He is smiling down on all the Express Yourself kids and remembers all the fun they had together.
