But since I've been talking about it so much, here's a recap of my night. With pictures!
6:30 Arrive early at the venue. Butterflies in my stomach. No lights on. No one is here! AUUUGH! It's freezing, go back to my car.
6:40 Someone is here. I can go inside! Also..BUTTERFLIES!
6:50 Decide on staging and seating arrangements, head back for costume change, hair and make up.
7:10 All dolled up and ready to go! Also BUTTERFLIES!
7:20 Final rehearsal of my dance with dance partner on dance stage. Decide on shoes...or no shoes. No shoes.
7:30 People starting to come in.
8:00 LOTS of people coming in....checking in dancers, collecting music, finalizing set lists and performance schedule, saying hi to friends who arrived for the show. And...my mom:-)
8:30 Getting antsy. Want to start dancing...but missing videographer.
8:45 Videographer is here! We DANCE!
8:46 Our cd skips. Stop dancing...wait for song to come back on
8:49 This isn't awkward at all
8:50 Oh who am I kidding? This is totally awkward!
8:51 We dance!
8:55-9:30 Announce the other dancers, watch the show, start to relax that it's going well.
9:30-11Take pictures, catch up with friends. Eat! Change into normal clothes. Sign dancers up for April's show. Relax!
11:00 Think about next show. Get butterflies.
And here are the pictures!
