Hey everyone again.
Just to tell all of you the times have changed to 21st of December 2:00 and 7:00 at Southwards car Museum.
So for this time I’m going to tell you what has been happening and later in the post tell you what usually happens when it is the concert time.
So far now we are doing rehearsals over and over again which is making me quiet exhausted. I would love that dance wasn’t so hard but that is just the point of dance if you want to look good you have to work at it. If you are wondering what I am going to be look at the post before this one, Now I’m going to tell you what I am with groups and also tell you what the costumes look like.
Scene 1 -I am the mother of clara.
Scene 2 -not in because I’m not clara a mouse or a solider or most importantly the nutcracker.
Scene 3 – Land of snow and there are only snow flakes and I am one of them.
Scene 4 -Land of sweets I am a Russian peppermint twist, Arabian coffee, waltz of the flowers.
Scene 5 – I’m not but I am Scene 5 is mostly about Clara and the Nutcracker but at the end we have our finally so I guess I am.
Mother the mothers will have big dresses like they would have been back in the time so big dresses with those weird things that you put underneath not a petticoat, but I hope you get it.
Snow flake well the snow flakes are going to look like a puffy skirt which is all white and a leotard.
Russian peppermint twists is a green and white big skirt down to my knees with a petticoat underneath and a green thing that goes around your waist and a patterned white top thing.
Arabian coffee is a a really dark brown maroon colour which is a crop top with this lass stuff with is the same colour but has different colours to it to make it look effective with the crop top it has the lass coming of the sleeves and then the pants have two v shapes at the front and back and the the lass fabric and they will look like fat pants kinda.
Flowers with the Flowers we have different colours for each class my class is purple. the skirt is purple with pink and green flower petals that just hang down and we have a green leotard.
So that is what our costumes look like. Now on to what usually happens when we are rehearsing at southwards then I will tell you what usually happens when we do have the concert.
So right now we are doing rehearsing at dance not until later we will rehearse at southwards. So when we do get up to the full dress rehearsals at southwards we get there and we start dancing, no that actually doesn’t happen.
The people around my age will go into the big dressing room down stairs, So when it does come to the time we have two days of dress rehearsals at southwards, on the first day we would only wear our costumes not make up because this is only to get the feel of the stage and so we get the space right and all that stuff.
In the dressing rooms they are quiet big The two up stairs are the biggest that’s for the little kids though 🙁 we get the cold dressing room down stairs and the only way to keep the room warm is to put the lights on around the mirrors and body heat. Last year the dressing room smelt dreadful I think someone ate fish in there so hopefully next time someone doesn’t. In the middle of the Dressing room there are these things to put your costumes on and each class gets there own:)
So when it comes to the full dress rehearsal the heat is on because lots of people get told of we have to start over and over again and the only ones that don’t have to do that is the little kids who are like 234( no fair) But I like being on stage no matter what if I’m getting told of. Usually I don’t nether does my best friend Josephine 🙂 So when it does come to the full dress rehearsal which is usually the day before the concert we have to wear make up put our costumes on properly and this stuff oh and the best part is at the end we all come to the stage and the teachers and the parents say what they like and we get chocolate fish.
So usually I’m at home panicking because I’m thinking I might get something wrong but hopefully I don’t. I leave with my dressing gown because when where not on we have to keep something on so we won’t spill anything on the costume. I get there with my make up already done and come into the dressing room. We have to come an hour early because they need to check that everyone is there and so we can get into our costumes, and usually the people that take the longest is the little kids. Last time i was there i went up this really dark hallway that had stairs and I went up I saw the whole stage over looking it. When we are ready and the audience has arrived we line up out side the stage door until we get a thumbs up. First up Is ( Stretch leap and spin ) Which I am in. We start the show off and we go on.
After that dance I have one more Jazz Dance to do, we go on and we hear the audience clap for us. When finall-y all the Dances are done we get to go back into the dressing room and have a break. Well when I say a break it’s only like 20 mins and I probably getting dressed at that time into the parent dress. Then after that 20 mins it’s time to go back on stage, but before we go on we have to wait for the on chore I think it is the long music thing before we start the Nutcracker.
Well when most of the Dancers for the first scene are on side stage I’m on the stage already with (Zoe-Clara) and ( Grace-Fritz) Because i’m the owner of the mansion and the mother of Clara. When finally the On Chore has finished we start the show.
I’m not going on how the concert is going but later I will tell you how the concert went.
