Juliet debut #2

Monday, November 21st, 2011

This past Friday night, I made my second debut as Juliet. After nearly 4 months of working on this new production it all finally came together at the performance. I couldn’t believe how relaxed I felt as I ran onto the stage for my first entrance. I had such a wonderful time dancing this new version(and boy, there sure is a LOT of dancing!!). Brand new full length ballets are rare, especially one with such an unforgettable story so it was a real pleasure to get to explore Juliet once more. It was kind of like dancing it again for the very first time…….

Slowly but surely…

This past week I did my first work through of the ballet and all in all, it went pretty well! Even though there are still sections that need to be completed, my choreography is finally finished. It was good to put it all together in sequence and get a small taste of what it’s going to be like on stage. Next step is adding the costumes and scenery once we get into the theatre next week. It’s going to take at least a few more rehearsals before I’m completely ready but I know I’ll feel calmer once I get on stage. Luckily there are more shows than usual this season and I’ll get the opportunity to dance it on Nov. 18,24&26…..
