Yes, I’ve been cast in Billy the Kid!

Perhaps the Lord of the Dance knew it was my birthday (the real Lord, not Michael Flatley). The cast list went up. My name was indeed on it. I will be “a cowboy” in Billy the Kid.

First two rehearsals are Friday and Saturday, and I am psyched. 

It will be my first non-Nutcracker performance with the company in almost two years.

And what made this an even more fun night? I did my best double pirouettes in maybe a couple of years, and on both sides. I did them with more consistency than I believe I’ve ever had.

And I had a feeling I would. I was able to balance well at the barre and kept the focus on my alignment and spotting during the combination that required them.

The last combination we did in class kind of threw me, but that’s OK. I was excited about being cast and my turns were finally there, so that was enough to keep a messy combination from ruining my night.
