See the scribbles to the left?
It could be one of those football play diagrams with lots of little arrows and circles that the coach scribbles on.
But actually its the culmination of of our last group practice before we five belly-dancers wow the old folks' home this Friday night. It's a group scribble deciding how we're all going to leave the stage after people have stopped clapping and throwing flowers.
Heh, we're assuming that last bit. :)
Do we all bow at once? Do we each do a little spin and whirl off-stage? Do we go in pairs and leave Linda to do the final finale and flourish? Who goes first? " It's like a damn four-way stop!" , one of us laughed.
Well, as we're arguing about the ending rather than the beginning or middle of the actual dancing, I'm taking this as a good sign. It's all come together rather well I think, although our practices degenerate into social time by about the one-hour mark.
Tonight we went through the music for the whole show while sitting in a circle on the floor together. We wiggled through the motions required from the waist up to run through the choreographies, while chatting and laughing our heads off simultaneously.
Well, we did improvise some of the lower body movements at first, but then someone commented that it looked like we were having a baby when we did a hip-drop shimmy, so then we were laughing to hard to continue.
Okay, so now I just have to practicepracticepractice on my own some more for the next couple of days and I'll let you know how it all turns out.
