“Keep on, keep on dancing all through the night. I gonna keep on, keep on, keep on, doin’ it riiiiiight.”
FYI, I am not old enough to know that song first hand.
So, today was a long day of trying to figure out costumes and practicing. I practiced my solo and a group piece. And then I drove to Cleveland to practice with Hareem Shar’eem and we went over and over our piece. Then I drove home and started practicing my solo again. I practiced 3 1/2 hours today. I was going to practice more and I just left my ipod where I was going hit the button again to practice my solo. Then I realized I just can’t do it again. I have to start fresh tomorrow. I hit the practice wall. It might be because the 3 1/2 hours was used to work on three choreographies. I did those three over and over and over.
I feel like now that I am focusing everything on this workshop and show, I am not as good of a blogger. I have no funny stories to tell because all I do is practice and stress about practicing. Pre-show Jez is not as much fun. I have to make a note of that. If I hadn’t gone on that long cruise before this workshop, I might have been more prepared and less stressed. But the snorkeling knows no show importance. Neither does the rum punch!!! Still, I am close to ready for this thing!!
My dogs were funny today. And they are full of energy this close to midnight because I was away from them practicing for hours. That is the best non-practice story I have right now. 😉
