I did it! I went a whole week without blogging. Sure, I felt guilty, but it quickly passed. I had plenty of other tasks to keep me busy. And with the creative juices freed up, I started a new novel which is exciting. So, for the benefit of my other writing projects, I’m going to a once a week blogging schedule. Probably on Mondays, but maybe not. I’m trying hard not to put pressure on myself that isn’t necessary.
My last blog was June 1st which was also Day One of my dance recital. It was held at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) where all of the Broadway road productions that come to Nashville run. I was surprised at how nervous I got. I’ve danced before crowds before; that wasn’t it. The venue freaked me out. I’ve seen big-name stars there and peruse hallways filled with photos of Broadway and Hollywood legends before shows and at intermissions. I seldom get star-stuck, but to be on the same stage as these performers messed with my mind. But, I survived and after the I got on stage for the first time all was well. Our dressing room was two flights of stairs below the stage and we had quick costume changes for our five dances, so once the show started there was no time for jitters.
Videos of ”I Feel Like A Woman” and “Mame” have made it to Youtube. Remember, most of us are in our fifties, sixties and seventies!
Our other dances were:
ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK
DOWN ON THE FARM transitioning into IN THE MOOD
NEXT BIG THING
Until next week.
