Talking to the students before their performance began was like a tornado:
“Should I change my hair?”
“Do I wear these stockings?”
“I haven’t precticed enough!”
“We didn’t have enough time!”
“I can’t wait, this is so exciting…”
“I’ve been stressing this moment for weeks!!!”
“This isn’t the sort of thing I usually do…”
And you know what? The routines all turned out gorgeous. Just like your instuctor knew they would when they said you were ready to do this.
It’s a funny thing, learning. While you’re doing it, you think it’s all fine and great – but then you have to do the same thing in front of people and it can be as if the world is a totaly different place.
Suddenly curtains and rows of chairs seem to take your familiar dance floor and transform it into a scary focal-point of bright lights and photo flashes. But it won’t always be this way.
Eventually, we have been in front of those lights enough times that they are exciting friends, showing us off to our best potential!
After more than a few Newsome Twosomes and Newsome Gruesomes, we can officially say that this was one of the NewEST: Mychael announced that as of this fresh location change – WE ARE ALL NEW AGAIN!
That’s right: if you have not performed with someone at this past Thursday’s Newsome Twosome, then going forward you may act as though you have never performed with them at all! So when these events come up again (both Twosome and Gruesome;) if you havn’t performed with them in this location, then it’s fair to start making plans!!!
A new home means a clean slate, and we want this next Gruesome event (this fall) to be the sickest, slimiest and most creepy yet! Bring your courage and prepare to see strange things, because it’s open season out there on the hard wood floor… 8D
