Things this season are moving so fast! I can't believe i am writing about finishing week one of rehearsals for our Nutcracker shows.

My stomach had been in knots for weeks about casting for this production since i got casted down a little in Dracula. I was happy and shocked to see that i was doing arabian, snow queen, and flower princess. I'm so pleased with my parts and actually proud of myself. I've been stretching extra and keeping really focused during class for improvement. I guess putting that extra energy into everything paid off!

This is my third year doing Arabian and my partner and i have some new tricks up our sleeves now that we are comfortable with the part. I can't wait to one-up the already tricky lifts. I trust him completely and know that he would never do any partnering that he doesn't feel safe with. It's so important to have reliable partners!

This weekend will be left for relaxing. I know once shows start there won't be much of those left!

I'd also like the note that i am being such a ninja on ebay doing early Christmas shopping. I love finding amazing gifts and early before the rush!

Hope everyone is doing well! happy 11-11-11!!
ps- i was throwing the idea around in my head , if anyone is interested, in having a penpal? I really miss the old day of letters.

a very important show

This weekend is a set of VERY important shows for us not because of what we are performing, but where. If we do well and impress them we will be asked to return to that space. It's where we will get the most reconition and we deserve to be there! I had a moment last night before the show when i turned to my booba and said, "We finally made it." It's taken a lot of dedication to the company, but i finally feel like we are where we need to be. People will respect us and more importantly we will have a name and an audience.
One more show on Sunday!! THEN.....Nutcracker rehearsals start this week...dun dun DUNNNNNNNNNNNNN. Casting goes up mon/tue. So nervous...i just want to do arabian again. It has got to be my favorite role.

Hope you are all well!!
me in the dressing room, glowing with excitement.
