So begins March, after a non-existent 29th day of February. And, in keeping with the idiosyncrasies of Savannah winters, it is 75 degrees and raining. Go figure.
There's only a week and a half to go in this, my second to last semester at SCAD. Probably because we are finishing in the middle of the week, the end seems abrupt, and yet too far away. Nearly all work has been completed for all my classes, with only a final image for the back cover of my portfolio to go. That's okay though, because this weekend is the debut of my first self-choreographing duet with Sam Collura. We'll be performing this Saturday in the Desoto Hilton ballroom, for ONE NIGHT ONLY! Judging by the standing ovation before the dress rehearsal was even done, I say it's going to be a smashing success, and I will have footage to post.
Also, because I can't resist my little ones, here's Casper and Rufio taking their first bath, and perhaps last, if Casper (the grey one) has anything to say about it.
And here is Rufio toweling off. He's so pampered.
So, La Traversee is done. After ten weeks of training, we had a great 4-day run at the historic Lucas Theatre last weekend. For those who came to the show, thank you so much, and I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed performing in it. And to my family, thank you for driving down to watch my show, it made the whole experience that much more rewarding.
I was a religious believer (we were never able to decide which religion specifically), and us girls danced in capes, ankle length skirts, and hats that resembled dog cones in the way that they hinder your peripherals. But, when we scolded gamblers for their sinfulness, pointing fingers and sweeping arms around windmill-style, we looked pretty awesome. My fellow believers may not like me for putting up a picture of us in our costumes, as they did not particularly like wearing those costumes, but I thought we looked very period in black and white, and for that reason alone, it is here as testament to our struggle. As a final note, thanks to my fellow performers for making the show such a great experience, and thanks to Vincent for another amazing dance show.
