Since the beginning of February, I cut down my work load, trained like a crazed person, gave up my snowboard season, lost money..all so 500 paying people could see me perform solo for less than 3 minutes on stage. I spent money on a designer costume, sessions with choreographers and rented studio space.
The biggest compromise was not seeing my non dancing friends and being away from this blog.
The following is a link to my unlisted performance on youtube:
It's far from perfect. Do I regret it? No. I was frustrated and injured for a good part of the time. I think I learned how not to injure myself and approach preparing for a performance in a less painful way.
If you get a chance to take a look, critiques are more than welcome:-) I will be 54 next month. Keep that in mind while watching my vid (if you have time to).
I'll be writing more soon.
