The time, that is. I can’t believe that we’re already into week 4 of rehearsals…. how with THAT happen?

My slightly ‘sporadic’ posting during last week was down to nothing more than tiredness and lethargy on my part. It was a hectic week with lots going on, and it clearly took it’s toll on my ability to do very much in the evenings at all – other than stretch out my aching bones!!

Last week, once we had given our “show off” of Destination Dance and some snippits of Hitsville USA to the powers that be, we started off with our next show – New York City Rhythm. Another doozy, with some great songs, and some pretty funky dance moves from Richard – our illustrious choreographer for the show. This one is also a little different as there is an original story running through the show, linked together with scripted passages and scenes – nice to have something to get your teeth into.

As we have a big “show off” for even MORE people from head office tomorrow, we spent today working through and cleaning Destination Dance, with some minor re-shaping and adjustments to make sure the show is “just so”. This does appear to involve some fairly full on “flesh on leather” action (don’t panic- it’s nothing dubious – think more panto than porno!) – but nothing we can’t handle.

We should also be getting hold of some of the props and ‘accessories’ that we will be using in the show from tomorrow, so it’ll be great to start to get used to using those. And Neil and I got a sneak preview of our big heads (no comments please…) that we will be sporting for the opening section. Photos to follow 🙂
