It's been too long since I've had time to write. Life has been stressful lately. There have been good times, but I'm kind of struggling at the moment.
Over the weekend I had my first ever rehearsal with the corps de ballet. So many girls dream of having that opportunity, so of course I was excited to understudy Waltz of the Flowers. That is until I failed. I was on the side learning the dance, while the company dancers were blocking it. I remembered every step on every count, and felt I could handle it when the director called me in. Unfortunately I'm unpracticed in dancing with a big group, and staying in patterns as I run around from one place to the next. I had the steps down, but I did some really stupid mistakes, like running around in a circle too many times, or cutting in front of the girl I'm supposed to be following. I was mortified to be making such a fool of myself in front of professional dancers.
Now I'm scared to go back to rehearsal, which is kind of inconvenient since I have two scheduled for this week. Not to mention my first snow scene rehearsal is this weekend, which is much harder than waltz. I hope everything turns out just fine.
