I have so much to talk about! I don’t even know where to begin, really, so much has happened in the past few days and I just haven’t had time to sit down and post. I would like to postpone some of my topics so […]
Month: June 2016
That’s right! Fourth full day of rehearsal and we were able to do a run through of 4 pieces together tonight. My job currently consists of a lot of prop pushing and dancing, and I am having SUCH a good time with that. I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures today because it was all-hands-on-deck while we were staging one of the numbers. Good news, though! Others in the cast are taking pictures on their breaks so I will be sure to post some of those pictures as they come available to me. The choreo we’re doing so far is VERY different from things I’ve been asked to do in the past. It’s challenging, but nothing I and the rest of the cast can’t handle. I just need reps to get my body moving in this new style that Michael is teaching us. I love it. Love, love, love it, even if I suck at it so much right now. I’ll get better!
Speaking of getting better, today was a day of growth for me. I hesitate to share my struggles in a public forum, but, as I said before, this blog is for ME, so I’m going to write about it. You have the choice of whether you read it or not – there’s a link at the bottom.
Anyway. The most amazing things I’m seeing so far are coming from the visual ensemble. No offense to the hornline or my fellow prop pushers, of course, but I think many of them would agree with me. The whole soundtrack is beautiful, but especially the Visual Ensemble feature we saw tonight. They’re all such incredible dancers and spinners – I could watch them for hours. I hope I can get permission to post some videos soon!
I lied, I did take one picture. I intend to ask what these coffee filtering contraptions are at some point, but I assume it’s a method of slow brewing or steeping coffee. It’s cool. Their cold brew is delicious.
I’m here! I’m here, I’m here, I’m here! Met a few people getting off the plane and took the shuttle to our hotel. Haven’t met my roommate yet. Oh! And found this link in my browsing while in between airports…
Woo! Here we go! #blast2016
