Good morning, lovelies.
Well, Kat and I thought we wouldn’t be starting our dance season until May this year…so although we still met at the studio to work–leisurely–on material and some technique-related things…we backed waaay off on the heavy work that usually goes into our babies.
We came up with the plan to alternate mid-week on Wednesdays at each other’s houses…where we would, in theory, maybe do Yoga or other exercise (to be honest, I think we really only did Yoga once)…mostly, we ended up using the time to cook dinner, watch movies and just have friend time. It was quite awesome, actually.
So, a big surprise came our way recently…and I mean 3 weeks ago…to make participate in a Winter Hafla put on by our very beloved friends from the Mayne Studio in Grand Rapids, MI. (shameless plug!)
We had been, as I mentioned before…leisurely been working on a new piece, so we figured we would finish choreographing that and be good to go….another surprise came when I checked our e-mail and saw that two numbers were desired….Ack!
Thankfully, we always have something simmering on the backburner, even if it’s just a song or a concept…so it took all of five minutes to figure out what our next song would be.
These last few weeks of cramming and laaate practices has been very illuminating. I cannot express how excited I am to be starting our season so early and especially in a place that we kind of see as a home away from home with our wonderful friends…you know who you are 🙂
But as I was saying…very illuminating. We have made some discoveries and taken some risks and I really believe the end result is going to change everything for us and what goals we wish to attain.
I will tell you something, though. I could not…would not…do any of this without my besty Kat on the stage right beside me.
So, my pretties…we are debuting two brand-new numbers this Friday in Grand Rapids at the Latvian Hall. For more information, please see: http://www.themaynestudio.com/winterhaflafeb1112th.html
Thank you guys so much for the support and the love we have received in the last couple of years…we appreciate you more than words can say.
