Well, hundreds. Okay, several dozen.
Yesterday was the Madison Studio recital at Zuver Center and we had a great time. Huge thanks are due to Kelly & Steve for coming out to cheer us on and to video our performance for us. We got lots of positive feedback on our performance, which is always wonderful to hear. After doing a lot of competitions and less formal exhibitions, it felt a little strange to be up on the stage all by ourselves with the audience watching us. In a perfect world I think we’d have routines choreographed just for this purpose–something with lots of flashy open work and very few steps in closed hold.
This video clip also shows the group that danced right after us, which was the Czardas number from Swan Lake. Most if not all of the Czardas are in the ballet class I take on Thursday nights. When the class danced its number later in the program, Daniel asked me why I wasn’t out there with them. I just gave him a look. But I am planning to go back on pointe again later this year, so maybe next year?
Here’s the video–let us know what you think of our performance!
