Karen has decided that now is not the best time for her to move to NYC. But being reunited with GMU dancers at graduation brought face-to-face with Ashleigh Gurtler, who is simultaneously planning a move to NYC, and looking for a roommate. Therefore, that problem has solved itself.
In other updates, the Dance Place Audition with Jenn Ruhl and Company went well. Unfortunately, we did not get a place in the upcoming showcase. There were over 30 acts auditioning and only 9 spots in the show. It was a good opportunity for us to perform as a group and to see how well we really know the dance. Our next scheduled performance will probably be the annual recital for Chris Collins Dance Studio.
This Saturday at the Reston Community Center, The Young Actor's Theatre is performing "A Cinderella Story." But its actually different than the Cinderella versions you have heard before. With an original script written and directed by Mark Brutsche. This is a combination of stories, including Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Rumplestiltskin. We have a lot of work to do to prepare for the show tomorrow. I won't give up until it is perfect.
