WHEW! I spent a lot of the day with my kids – made a big difference for both of them. We painted, went to the Creamery (not a good move – I think I gained 6 pounds from the ridiculous ice cream cone they gave Elijah!), had a picnic lunch… it was a fun day!
Tonight, I printed my cue sheets and runner sheets, got the honor cards printed and filled out and then spent some time practicing. I know, unheard of. However, I am really nervous about not having danced full out in my pointe shoes on that crazy stage during rehearsal, so I want to make sure my choreography is clean. I changed one step to a sissone en pointe instead of a developpé relevé – much easier on the left ankle. Gotta love ibuprofen and BioFreeze. Speaking of which, did any of my advanced students borrow my tube of BioFreeze? I can’t find it anywhere?!?
I have only 12 tickets left, and people keep calling… so for those of you who need a ticket, you need to let me know right away!
Hope everyone has a happy Prom tomorrow… be safe!
