Company is here!

I have been highly anticipating the start of Company, and we have already finished our first week! Our schedule is kind of weird, but we had rehearsals Monday, Tuesday, Thursday this week. And then next week we have rehearsal Monday and Tuesday. Then the next couple following weeks is Tuesdays and Thursdays. All our rehearsals are 2 and a half hours long.

So anyway, here's what we did this week:

Monday:  We had barre warm-up and then we worked on our ballet piece. It's actually based off of the movie "The Village". The Music we are using is really cool, and the choreography is very intricate with lots of floor work. Here's the music so you can hear it:

This is the first song.
Then we use this song when the battle scene starts.

We haven't started the battle scene yet, and not everybody gets to be in the battle scene. Only 10 of us, I'm hoping I'll be in it, but I'm not really sure.
Tuesday: We did a jazz warm up while the ballet teacher finished up with the Junior Company. Then the ballet teacher came back and we did more work on ballet.

Thursday: We did a jazz warmup, plus some stuff across the floor. Then my jazz teacher said she'd pick people for the small group jazz. And... I GOT PICKED!!! I'm so excited to get the oppertunity to be in this number with all the really good dancers! I'm actually the youngest, and lowest leveled girl who was picked for the number, so I feel very honored. We are doing the number to the song "Feeling Good" by Michael Buble. You probably already know this song, but in case you aren't, here's a video.

So anyway, we got a good chunk done. We are probably about halfway already!!!! Good thing to, my teacher is wanting us to be able to perform in at a fair on August 25, which is in 3 weeks! So anyway, yeah... that's what's going on! Stay tuned for a new post soon!

P.S. I do not own those videos, and I give full credit to the owners.
