And the nerves set in!!

Sooooooo my recital is this Sunday. And I’m so nervous. Like waaaaay more nervous than last year. Our dances are so much more difficult this year. I just want to look good and land all my turns. Is that too much to ask?!? Hah! I know in the end, I’ll end up being ok, but I’m still nervous. I’ll try to take some pictures from rehearsal and performance day! I love our costumes, so I’ll try to get pictures of them for sure. We only have one more night of classes on Thursday, then it’s the rehearsal on Saturday. A group of us is also performing at a local arts event after our rehearsal, so I look at it as another opportunity to practice!

On a side note- my pointe shoes are finally working for me. I’ve stuck with my Grishko 2007’s. I have ended up wearing a 7.5 on my left foot and a 7.0 on my right. Both still the soft shanks. It seems to be working! I had to cut the satin off my platforms and replaced it with some moleskin due to the crazy slippery satin on them. Works like a charm!

Well, here’s to another recital!! Send me all of your good-dancer-good-luck vibes, because I most definitely need them!!!! I’m so excited for our show. I know it’s going to be awesome. Everyone has worked so hard on their dances. So yay!

Happy Dancing!! 🙂
