Well hello everyone! I am so happy because my dance is finally done! Well, it still needs a few tweeks but nothing that will take too long. I’ve also started to think about costumes, hair and makeup. I’m going to have my hair down and poofed I think with kind of a neutral face for makeup. For my costume, I’m hoping to borrow from someone so I don’t have to go out and buy anything. (Costumes are crazy expensive.) I’m hoping to have a brownish-gray costume, very neutral earthy tones… But no green…
In other news, competition season has started!!! One of my favourite things about competition is that I am able to sit and watch all the different dances. At a competition, one is exposed to so many different styles because of all the different genres and all the different characters. The costumes are also fun to see!
It’s also really nice when Ms. Lindsay’s at the competitions. It was great because she was actually backstage with me the first time I competed my modern solo this year.
Sadly at this past competition, one of our dancers became really sick and was unable to perform. We found this out the day before we were supposed to compete. Our ballet dance was really reliant on partners and we didn’t know what we were going to do. Ms. Lindsay, being amazing, agreed to fill her spot. After about 34 hour, Ms. Lindsay had learned the 5 minute dance and performed with us on stage. She did amazing and we actually qualified for a high score round called “Peak Challenge”. Though we didn’t end up placing, it was an amazing experience that I loved sharing with my mentor.
That’s all for now, I love how well everyone’s projects are turning out and I’m excited for the final products to all be seen!
Little quick end note: Ms. Lindsay can come to Indepth night! I can’t wait!
