The practice that failed
Have you ever made a really big fool of yourself? If so, you know how I felt after my first practice for Billy Elliot. It was the first day that our dance group got together to start working.
When out choreographers walked in we all got very quiet not sure what they would be like. It turned out they were all really nice. We started the day off with some simple moves.
After a little while they wanted to see how well we did on high kicks. We all learned a small step routine that involved a single turn, high kick, double turn, high kick, triple turn. That is pretty simple for most of us. So after the first couple people go it is my turn I easily land the single, the first high kick, and then the double turn.
