Wednesday night is my regular dance class. However, Thanksgiving is taking the place of dance class tomorrow. Just for fun, I emailed my instructor to see if she would like to come over for a lesson. She agreed. Whenever she comes over, we have something like a cross between a girls’ night out and a dance class.
We went through my costumes looking at different things and how they might be adapted. I had ordered two velvet coin bras that had built-in underwires. I had (foolishly) hoped that they would fit properly when I ordered them. Wishful thinking. Once I have sewn those coin tops onto a frame (i.e., another bra) I’ll have two additional tops: a backup burghundy one and a purple one. I have a complete purple outfit with top (needs work), purple chiffon petal skirt with matching veil, and velvet pantaloons. It’s nice because with the layers it is a pretty warm set.
I also have a black choli top that I got from Wal-Mart. The lingerie department has black velvet tie tops for $8.82. The tops are perfect choli tops. Nice and warm for dancing in a studio in winter.
While my instructor was here, we reviewed a choreography. We went through it step-by-step. It’s a fun one. More challenging than the original choreography we performed last week. (Was it really a week ago?)
The troope’s next engagement is this coming Monday. We’re supposed to appear in the Kingston Christmas Parade, which starts at 5:30. I don’t know that I will be able to get there after work to participate. Most likely not. I hope everyone has fun with it.
