I cant believe that my first season of Odyssey Dance Theatre is almost through. Ill i have left is our tour in Europe! I cant wait to spend a month in another country doing wait i LOVE:)
Here is a little overview of how the season went….
It all begin with some with the Utah tradition of THRILLER…From being a zombie, a mummy, a witch, and ending strong as a river dancer, it was a crazy experience. I was a member of the touring cast and I got the opportunity to perform at Tuachaun in St George! That stage was INCREDIBLE! Some nights were a litte too cold but the red canyon backdrop couldn’t have been more stunning! We had some crazy nights of Truth or Dare, poke-a-nose,
and late night In and Out runs. Overall…Thriller was a show to remember.
Then we switched gears and headed into Its A Wonderful Life. We followed the story line of the Christmas Classic that everyone loves. As comes with being a new member, I was a rosie riveter during the show which required a lot of set moving…That was hard because i really wanted to be dancing more, put i had to pay my dues and next year will be different! It was a treat to “fall” into the high school dance pool with George Bailey!
The show was a perfect Christmas success!
Then the craziness began! We stared rehearsals for S
hut Up and Dance! I had 3 new shows to learn and i thought my brain was going to explode! We stared learning Transitional Illuminations-choreo by Mia Micheals. That was an amazing experience in itself. That dance is brilliance and i was blessed to perform it. Someone how i pulled off being a Willis in a full length contemporary ballet called Giselle, got the opportunity to be apart of Mia’s Choreo as well as Justin Giles new piece, and was a Thug as a part of the MonteKrew in Romeo and Juliet!
Romeo and Juliet was a brand new show for everyone and the success was fantastic! I throughly enjoyed being a gangsta the whole show! i even had some pretty sick corn rows haha!
The cast was amazing and we seriously KILLED IT! i cant wait to take this show to Europe and show the Europeans what we do best!
