Getting my body ready for a day of classes and a show tonight ~ The last couple of days I've been in preparation mode for the show,
Here's What That's Looked Like: -Listening to the recordings of our rehearsals
-Practicing (obviously...) -Doing my solo in my head from start to finish before going to sleep.
-Taking care of my body* -And reminding myself of these nine things to help get my mind into a good place. (Link to those nine things below....) *A note on the taking care of my body part: I don't always do a good job of this before a show, and I could be doing a better job right now, notably getting more sleep. The motivation this time was partially so that I would be able to fit into my skirt (that's the truth), but it pays off in bigger ways because when I do make an effort to take extra care of myself, it helps me to focus, and it just feels good. (I feel nervous, but the truth is, I feel much more prepared for this show than I did for either of the performances with Ricardo last month where we had just five days to choreograph and put together the whole show. This time I am one of many dancers which means I'm just doing a couple of dances, and, on top of that, hearing Alfonso sing makes me want to do nothing but DANCE!) Anyway, check out my latest blog post for more on this, a letra Alfonso will be singing for me tonight and a favorite of Rocío Molina dancing to the guitar of Raphael Rodríguez "Cabeza." I think I could watch this dance a million times... experienceflamenco.com/blog/2017/4/14/a-media-letra-por-guajiras-the-weekly-letra
