Oh yeah! NaBloPoMo and another dance concert

Whoa, whoa, whoa... NaBloPoMo already?!?!

Um, yeah, I'm a little behind the times here... but whatever. No way in Hades am I going to pull off blog posts for the days I've missed but that doesn't mean I can't jump in and get-'er-done for the rest of the month. And awaaaaaay we go!

Nothing too exciting to report here... oh wait! Yes there is. My Student Dance Concert piece got selected to be featured in the Fall Dance Concert! I was one of four that was selected, out of 15. Not too shabby! So what I thought was going to be a chill week last week wasn't so chill, but it a-okay, because my piece got picked! Never in a trillion years did I think that was ever going to happen... not because I don't think I'm good enough, but because my style is a bit diff than everyone else's. I like to use mainstream music with lyrics (the faculty don't love this - oh, the horror!) and my movement tends to be more "pedestrian" or "vernacular", depending on who you ask... which just means you can see my hip hop/African/swing dancing background in my work. I don't make apologies for my style, but when it comes to school, I just don't expect to be picked for the Fall/Spring concerts. But I did! And I'm tickled pink.

This week's agenda... tech rehearsals tonight through Wednesday, dress rehearsal Thursday night, show time Friday and Saturday. And sweet jesus, Thanksgiving Break is only two weeks from now. Bring on the turkey and football and laying around in my jammies!

(Oh, and P.S.... I have a new project that I'm really excited about! I will fill you in sometime later this week... Have a fab week, y'all! xoxo!)
