Oh, That Dance?

So we had that dance “competition” on Saturday, and it was a blast. Of course, we were all crazy nervous (for really no reason) as we sat there waiting for other teams to perform. Cristina, bless her heart, was bouncing-on-the-edge-of-her-chair nervous… I think mostly nervous that the other teams would have better dance numbers or songs than us. Of course, sitting next to all that nervous energy was enough to make me anxious too (not to mention the fact that I’m really not a big fan of performing in front of people anymore. Talking, yes. Dancing, not so much).

Every school team (made up of all the advisors that will help corps members at that specific school) had to perform a song/dance number, so that meant watching nine groups perform before we got to go. It was fun to see everyone’s song choices (and the varying levels of … preparedness of each team), but it was not so much fun sitting and waiting, knowing you are performing last.

But of course we all remembered our lines and we got a standing ovation of sorts (mostly because our “conductor” was a very charismatic person), so I think it went well. Either way, it was pretty fun.


Waiting for the meeting to start… Our costumes were all-black
clothes, and then we wore our red lanyards around our heads. I
think we were trying for the gangster look, but I personally think
we all looked more like ninja turtles.


Here’s the email we got the night before containing the lyrics to our song:
