Now some of you may already know, but I am currently a member of a small company. Recently we were asked to bring two of our ballets to a town about four hours away, all expenses paid. It was an amazing opportunity and I'm so glad that I got to be a part of it!
For safety reasons, I'm going to dance around specifics and not reveal town or business names. Here's a short and sweet version of our adventure:
The dancers, chaperone's and others that had been asked to go on this trip all gathered at the school at 10:00 AM. Those of us still in school skipped for the day and that right there was enough to stir the excitement. We divided ourselves into as few cars as possible and set out. The drive was near to four hours and thanks to today's technology it seemed much shorter. Anxious texting between cars and movies in the backseat kept everyone entertained.
Before even reaching the motel we headed straight to the theatre for show number one.
Aside from a couple costume malfunctions the show went really well! Exhausted and hungry we finally headed to the motel.
The pool was the main reason we requested that specific motel...
She liked to shush us :P
