The Full Dress Rehearsal

This evening, the girls at DanceArt had their full dress rehearsal. The makeup tryout took forever and we began actual rehearsal nearly an hour past our scheduled time. But it was worth it. They now know exactly what was needed and time spent on actual day will be a lot less.

Here's a few pictures, hot from the rehearsal.

From L to R, Abigail, Sunitha, Bee Hong, Pei Wun and June.
The girls are shown here in their 1st variation costumes. Apart from Abigail, who is a newbie in competitions, the others look forward to that adrenaline rush from the annual competitions.

In the wild, monkeys spend endless hours grooming  each other. In the cultured environment of the ballet world, it's no different. The 3 monkeys here were taken in the process of changing their hairstyle from the compulsory  to the choice variation.







Now we are all set for the coming weekend. My last piece of advice to these 5 gorgeous girls (and they ARE gorgeous), I am extremely proud of all of you.  A few moments on stage comes with a high price. The endless hours of practices, running around getting costumes, accessories and sewing sequins. Yes, especially the sewing sequins bit. But you did well. Whatever the outcome of the competition this weekend may be, you girls are winners to me. You have rose to the challenge, to improve yourself to tackle a difficult solo variation.

I may have bullied, yelled and even shoot 'fire' from my eyes at you, but you all took it in stride, believing that I would not have done it if I don't love you. So God Bless you.
