With a quick turn-around of two weeks (and limited time in my schedule to rehearse) I’m jumping back on stage to defend my title with a new dance partner/choreographer. This year we’re doing a jive to ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ from Hairspray. I’m loving it! But it’s making me realize I am out of shape. It’s time to renew that Y membership.
There’s a big part of theatre and performing arts that says ‘If you forget a line or don’t know what you’re doing, just smile and act like you do.’ This seems more truthful for dance than anything else. Not to say I don’t have it down…but I admit I will probably be making a few errors confidently. As long as I err in confidence, I trust no one will know. Regardless, it’s sure to be a good time!
