Company meeting.


The show went kinda rough this past saturday. It wasn't BAD just very unpolished. It was obvious on a lot of the dancers faces that we weren't ready completely for the show. Instead of enjoying the time on stage and dancing comfortably through the movement we looked scared. The time on stage was spent thinking ahead what step was next instead of thinking about acting. I'm sure with the extra weeks rehearsal next weekends show will be better. Oh and i also messed up my variation by skipping a step and having to make up half of it to make up for time. Our director said at least i covered it well. Ugh, i wish sometimes there was a due over button. I would be using it right now.

In other news, on top of running the Rep. show this week AND Sleeping Beauty, we have company meeting with the director. We will be meeting with her individualy to talk about what we will be doing next year (staying or going) so she knows who to hire from the audition. I'm so nervous. I'm previous years this meeting did not go so well for me. I'm afraid she doesn't want me to stay. I wish i was more confident sometime or that i had a back up plan! Being a dancer is so scary. You work so hard for such a short amount of time to shine. I feel very anxious. It's a good thing i'm on spring break from teaching this week! At least i will have the evenings of to relax and de-stress. Oh , and this weather is just lovely! I'm trying to stay positive!!

I'm going to try to make it to a show this weekend. My Mom said that for the rehearsal schedules and you all holding the show for her to arrive with costumes..... You did great! I'm going to be sitting with Phyllis soon to dicuss if there is possible a place for me there. I hope your meeting goes well.
