I have just finished my first year show. It was exciting, dreadful, exhausting and inspiring. It been 5 weeks of studio rehearsals and 1 week of theatre rehearsals in London.
Unfortunately as a first year you are usually only in a few numbers. Most people are used to coming from a dance school in which they were quick changing constantly through a show; so it’s a shock to the system when you can have a leisurely change and even redo your hair and make up mid show.
Of course I would have loved to have been featured in more numbers, however it’s not to be expected in first year. I could at least enjoy my first show without any stress. Just next year I will work hard to hopefully be picked to be in more numbers.
It was exhilarating to dance on stage again. It had been *cough 4 years since I last danced on stage. I have been in plays over the last few years however my dancing has been restricted to small scale university competitions.
This experience has instilled in my mind that I am doing what I want to do and has made me even more determined to do what I can to get to my dream destination.
Until next time
