On Sunday we had our first performance of 'Modigliani' of the season.  Thomas Edur's full length ballet about the 'cursed artist'.

Lunch time shows feel strange.....strange in the way that we have class at 1030am and our performance at 12.  I always feel like I'm chasing time, warming up and doing my make up and hair..... no sooner have you got up, you feel like you're already on stage and wanting to give your best performance for the audience.

Then of course the nice side of having an early show, is having the rest of the day to enjoy and relax!  Sunday's glorious weather gave us just that....

Back To It...

We now back into full swing of training, rehearsals and performances. After a long eight week summer holiday (I think the longest holiday I've ever taken!) it hasn't being as hard as I imagined to get back into the rhythm of our daily routine!  As I said before in my last post, I'm enjoying my new season 'gym attack' and it's also such a good feeling to be back on stage!

The most bizarre moment of my week was at our 'Theatre Day' last Sunday in which we were set the task of seeing how many ballerinas fit into a Toyota Yaris!!!

We managed 22!!!

A day in the life...

After numerous requests to starting posting 'my typical day', it was about time I got around to doing just that!!  

As we are only just warming up to that start of the season, days are not so frantic! (though I do still think I need more than 24 hours to a day!)
As the weeks pass, days will feel shorter, crazier and tiring.... but also performances, which are the 'perks' to all our hard work!  I'll try and make this post a regular fixture to my blog.

It took nearly an hour to sort out my things!!! Have way too much ballet gear, no idea how I collected so much OR how it all fits in my cupboard, but on the plus side, found things I had totally forgotten I owned :)

We have an hour and a quarter class every morning.  We always have separate girls and boys classes and rotate different teachers throughout the week.

Usually after a 15 minute break, our first rehearsal of the day begins..... 
It isn't everyday that we walk on to stage to find the inside of a church set out!!!

This set was for the opera, so we took the opportunity to sit amongst the pews, waiting for the stage crew to remove it!

I am an avid fan of pilates, this last year in particular.... 
My new interest is also the gym!  Naturally being on the skinny side, I am determined to beef up..... a little!!! Concentrating on my abdominals, back and arms, it's a killer and I have to force myself in there, murmuring the mantra in my head of NO PAIN, NO GAIN!!! (Is that true!!!???)

The Opera House has a new, swanky looking piano this season and we took to the stage to introduce it to the world!!!

At the end of a long day,  it's costumes hung up and time for home.....

And tomorrow, we will see how many ballerinas fit in to a 'Toyota Yaris'.... no joke!!!!
