My rehersal is on June 20th. I can't guarentee the awesomeness of any other dance in the recital (there are a lot of really young dancers in it), but ours should be pretty good. We've been working on the choreography since January and have been cleaning up all of the steps for the last few weeks.

There are some places where I'm not super great right now, but I'm working on them. I have a tendency to focus on my feet and leave my arms until later, which is not the best practice, really. However, slowly but surely I'm getting better at everything.

Today was a bit of a setback because I couldn't jump onto my left foot very well. I figured this out as I was doing a hitchkick, which was unpleasant. However, it's feeling fine again now. I have it wrapped up and will probably be elevating it pretty soon as I grade papers. (So don't want to do that tonight!)


So, I'm inviting people to my dance, but it's on the same day as Gaskells (shows are 11am, 1pm, and 3pm) and there's a lot of little kid dances to sit through(cute but boring if they aren't your kid). If it's a problem, don't worry at all. I'm a bit shy about this, to be honest. I'm definetly not a professional ballerina, and this dance is not en pointe. However, the choreography is awesome (my sister did it) and we will do a great performance.

If you think you might be interested in seeing me dance, the recital will be in Saratoga, at West Valley College on the 20th of June. Let me know so I can get you tickets as they may be cheaper that way. I don't know the prices yet, but they are usually around $6.

Richard, I was wrong about the show times. There is apparently no 3pm show, only an 11am and 1:30pm show. And the tickets are $12 this year! (No clue as to why they are so expensive.)

I will try to get in touch with you to make sure you get this message via facebook, in case you don't get emailed messages from here.

... and I just realized that I don't have you as a friend on facebook.

Um... please comment here to let me know you got this!
