Good Morning! And the season begins....

Good Morning! I'm enjoying my coffee and thinking about the opening show we had yesterday for the companies 30th season. It was a free outside performance that included pieces of our rep and the full length 7 Sins that Kris and I choreographed. The response from the audience was great!! When a show is free and open to the public you get a really mixed crowd. I was so pleased to see how many people actually stopped and stayed for the whole show. This was a wonderful kick off to the season. For me personally i didn't feel it was my best performance. In the morning i was having some lower back spasms that were on and off. I knew it was going to be a challenge to get through the show with pain. But, like any dancer knows as soon as you get on the stage the pain disapears. My nerves were still there however! I can't kick being nervous before a show. I try to manage it by distracting myself with cleaning and relaxing, but it's always there in the pit of my stomach. It's funny how that feeling never really goes away. I have a lot of pressure on me to be my best. The company has grown and there are a lot of really amazing dancer that i know are better than me. As a company memember i have to be on my game and try to maintain my position. I feel like everyone wants the spot where i am and i know they are capable of it. I need to really push myself this year to show why i am here. I'm ready, lets do this! Tis' the new season !! ;) Have a good one! ~Sara~
