By the end of yesterday’s 6 1/2 hour rehearsal run, I was left feeling a bit like this ^
Now I’ve got two days off before heading into an 8 day work week. Yes, you read that right- 8 days, Tuesday-Tuesday. Sandra Jennings (of the Balanchine Trust) returns next weekend to finish setting Agon (eeeep!) and I’m feeling excited/nervous/happy/stressed/anxious/inspired…I could go on and on. But, instead of succumbing to negativity, I’m taking on the super week with one piece of advice in mind: Have fun.
The only way to triumph over a situation that intimidates you is to treat it as a fun challenge. Approach it as a chance to surprise yourself. Dare yourself to do more, work harder and like it. These are the words of wisdom I’ll be keeping in mind next week.
Happy weekend, all! x
