Rehearsals started last Wednesday from 6-9pm. The session was intense, but incredibly fun- and the directors are still just as cool as they were on Sunday. I came straight from work and didn't have a chance to eat anything, so during the time I spent rolling around on mats and learning high-energy 'hype' dancing (it's all in the name!) all I could think about was food... Next time I'll definitely eat before!
We have intensive rehearsals until show day, and on the week leading up to the show we rehearse full days (I had to book time off work, but this is definitely worth it!). The performance is in the very preliminary phases at the moment; all we know is that it will showcase a fusion of circus, acting and dance which could be based upon themes such as 'Gremlins', 'the colour green' and 'competition'. I'm sure it will come together in the end! At the moment the only concrete aspect of our show is the name, 'Cirque da Funk!'...
There will be more updates coming this way soon!
In the meantime, I have something very exciting to share with you, which is lined-up for the coming month of February. On 10th February 2012, I will star in my first ever aerial hoop performance at none other than 'The Lightbox' in Vauxhall!
Check out the pretty sexy venue!
The night itself is Planet Angel's 'Valentine's Day Ball', which will be packed with performance, dancing and of course, fruit platters all round! If you've not been before then you're in for a treat...it's an incredibly special night (and goes on until dawn...and thereafter!)
I've been practicing so much, I think my hands may just fall off; but I'm sure it will be well worth it...
...Hoop to see you there!
