Week 6

Finally the Monday of week 6 has ended. It was a very long day for me. The theme for this week is "The Nutcracker" and on Friday I will be performing the following:

  • The Sugarplum Fairy Variation

  • The Lead Arabian role in the "Finale"

  • The Sugarplum Pas De Deux

(And remember that this is not an "actual" show. The really advanced partnering will be watered down for us newbies but the variations are still the same choreography as the real thing.)

Yeah you could say I'm pretty nervous. Luckily I have a great partner for the pas de deux and we have a lot of rehearsal time this week. As I am still only 14 I am not extpecting to do this pas as well as any principal dancer but I'm gonna give it all I have and pray for the best! Wish me luck! ;)

Thankfully there aren't many rehearsals this week as Bach/Firebird only has one cast. We have a run-through on Thursday but until then it's regular classes. (I can't believe it either)

Well, thanks for reading! I'm gonna go ice my entire body now.
