Yes the season has truly begun! Class, Rehearsal till 2:15, 30 minute massage(thank you, thank you), 3 hour break(not such a fan of the long break) and then rehearsal from 6 until 8 or 9.(and Nutcracker Grand Pas at that..... :-S). My body is asking "WTF? Where did swimming at the beach and laying out go?"...
Really though, I am excited to start rehearsals and get back into shape fully!
I am cast as 'Hilarion' in Giselle. It's the second male lead and a lot of times it's an older dancer and maybe not too much dancing. In this version the dancing is harder. It's also a very emotional part with a lot of acting. It will be fun to do. Opening Night is October 13th. Not a lot of time to prepare a full length ballet. Everything is being thrown at us at a very high speed and we must absorb instantly. No learning it slowly and getting it into your body.
I will for sure, no matter how late, be putting my feet in the sea tonight!
I will try and get some studio shots and post soon.
