Ballerina + Ballroom = Awkward!

I have not written in so long! I apologize profusley!
Although you have heard it before, I have been very busy and extremley tired at the end of the day, hence the lack of entries.
In any interesting news, I performed a ballroom number! It was the strangest thing to do something so out of my element. I have a new found respect for those graceful dancers in heels! It's really hard to dance in heels! And to add to that stress, the day of the opening night, a girl in the number got incredibly sick so we had to switch parts around and I had to learn a whole new position! New partner and all! Although thankfully it all turned out wonderfully and I don't think I have ever had that much fun doing a dance like that one. (Aside from performing George Balanchine's Serenade which still ranks 1st place.)
Now we have moved onto "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and I have been cast in an additional part to the two I had already announced. (A fairy in the corps de ballet and understudy to a soloist fairy) I am also a Maid of Honor in the wedding scene. It's been fun so far as we have started rehearsals. But there is still so much work to be done! I hope everyone is having a great start to 2010!

A Midsummer Night's Dream

It's official! My school is going to be performing A Midsummer Night's Dream in the spring and the cast list came out! I have been cast as a... Wait for it... *Drum Roll*
A FAIRY! (Big surprise there!) It is a corps de ballet role and is very charming. We come out and do our "fairy dance" and then the scene cuts to the lovers. The ballet sort of goes like that the entire time, but it is very lovely and I am excited!
And now for the truly exciting news! *Drum Roll*
I have also been cast as an understudy to Peas Blossom! Peas Blossom is one of the soloist fairys and that part does a TON of dancing! I am so thrilled! All right, it's Thursday morning and I have a lot of work to do! Thanks everyone!
Oh and happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah, the New Year has begun! Recapping on 2009, it was a pretty good year overall. I got cast in some great roles and I started my blog which I am so glad that I did! I'm always sad to see a year go by... but life must go on and will go on whether I like it or not!
Vacation is almost over. We have tomorrow (Sunday) and then on Monday, back to regular life... Although, it's been snowing so hard here, ballet classes may be canceled! Although it's suppose to wither down on Monday. It was very nice to have some down time to just clean up the house and laze about for a couple of days. I needed it!
I came up with some new year resolutions:
  • Work on my turnout (I desperately need more of it!)
  • Get up to at least 30 followers on this blog at least by the end of the year. (We'll see!)
  • Put more pictures on my blog.
  • To get farther on my book. (Yes I'm writing a book.... It's going pretty slowly though!)
We'll see how I do! ;)
2010 is going to be a GREAT year! I can feel it! (Blogger updated the posting page and I am loving it!)
My laptop crashed! :(

My grandparents are going to Florida for my grandpa's 80th birthday. So she left her 14 year old beagle with us. Yeah... he's turning out to be a handful! He needs to go out pretty often and he cries at night as he isn't use to this environment and usually sleeps by my grandparents' bedside.
So yup... That's my life right now! Thanks to anyone who's viewing! ...Don't leave me!
