So last night I stepped out of my comfort zone, into my old and what use to be my comfort zone...
I went to an audition for the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert dancers...
Now, I knew it wasn't a ballroom audition, which is a lot more in my realm. But, I thought I would try and I really need to be dancing again. So it was a surprisingly fast taught routine, and being out of the dance world that muscle in my brain had not been exercised, and it wasn't ballroom so it wasn't all moves I was use to. But it was fun. They wanted it to be more musical theatre, more character driven, but backed up by technique. I think I did well with the character portion, but I do not entertain thoughts that I made it. (This isn't me being self deprecating, it is just being honest with seeing the competition.)
Another great thing about the audition, was that I was able to have a little reunion with some amazing girls from the Dance Alliance Russia team. It was so nice to talk with them and dance with them again! After the audition we went out to dinner and just chatted. I haven't done that in a while, talking with some sweet ladies.
I woke up this morning sore, and I was so happy.
Last night with the girls we talked about how some people think of dance as "something they did in high school" and I didn't understand that mentality, though it seems like that is how I have been living. I remember some people in college telling me I should never stop dancing, and I never thought I would.
So, the question is, where does a 27 year old go for dance classes?
