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!
