35 Minutes and we begin…

By the time this post hits, I should be on my way out the door to the rehearsal hall.  I can’t tell you how excited I am, and nervous, that the time has come to begin working on this show.  I have been working on the show in pieces  since July of ’09!  So needless to say, it’s been a long time coming.  What I hope for most is that the cast enjoys this choreography.  There’s something wonderful that happens when a dancer loves or enjoys a particular piece, and usually it ends up looking like a completely inspired piece.  So I have my fingers crossed.  I want 7 inspired pieces!!

Something that I discovered about myself while working on some of these songs is that I am most productive if I hit points in the song that can have a dark interpretation.  Take Big Spender for instance,  its supposed to be a sexy song, but I wanted that darker element of this place.  This piece is a bit off the Fosse map, but I feel like it fits, and it’s dancey, and it still maintains that sexiness without being crude.  I just wanted a little uncomfortable thrown into the mix to put my stamp on it.

More to follow soon…
