A Bad Dress Rehearsal Makes a Great Performance...

^If that's true, we will have a stellar performance tonight! In case you didn't get it from that last sentence, dress rehearsal really stank. At least, some of the dances did... So here's what happened.

We had Jazz first, and our teacher was pretty dissapointed with us, I hope that I do better tonight. It's so dark, and you literally can't see ANYTHING during that dance. I just felt all the wobbly and off...

Tap was about as bad as it gets. Our teacher wasn't there, we NEEDED her there. It's just not really possible for us to be able to block this 20+ person dance on our own. We were all so concerned about our blocking that the rythymns were totally off...

Pointe was pretty good I think. I thought it was good, and our teacher said it was good. The spacing is pretty easy, and I thought that I did the choreography very nicely.

Ballet was also good, I stumbled a little bit on a part where we are in tendu derriere and then we fondue and bring our leg into a parallel passe and extend it back out into an arabesque, right out of a double pirouette. Nothing difficult really...

The Duet was nice, but I don't have much to say about it.

Lastly, was modern. I thought we did awesome. We were on the music, and all together, and just awesome in general. :)
