First and foremost, in case you havent noticed, I have gotten my braces off! That means my arangetram will be performed braces free, which is incredibly exciting for me!

I spent hours helping backstage yesterday and even got ready here at the Irving Arts Center. Fun fact: my arangetram is now 20 days away, same place, same time. I got the opportunity to learn a lot about how the whole process of prepping for the program goes and just how much work goes into it. You need a separate team for the altar, podium, musicians seating, lobby, getting the dancer ready, making sure lighting is alright, making sure sound works- boy is there a lot to do.

This arangetram didn’t have a dress rehearsal, so I can’t speak on that. My first dress rehearsal experience will be my own. Don’t worry though-  I’ll make sure to make time before the 21st to discuss it in detail.

Well, that concludes the beginning of the season. Six arangetrams until mine! Wish me the best!!
