As if I didn’t have enough to sew for the may dance recital, I decided to add a couple more responsibilities on my “to do” list.
I will now be in 5 different dances instead of 4. Originally, I was in hip-hop, lyrical, soft shoe ballet, and pointe pieces. On Monday I asked if I could do a solo after watching Slumdog Millionaire and hearing the award-winning Jai Ho song from the soundtrack. Since the theme of the recital is “around the world” I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a fun pointe solo to it. That alone added the task of choreographing a piece but then I didn’t find a costume I liked enough to pay $60 for, so, consequently I’ll be sewing my costume. I’m thinking it’ll be a modified Sari, that will allow me to move gracefully.
I found some beautiful fabric yesterday for my Sari. Hopefully I’ll make Bollywood proud with my creations. I’m most eager to make my costume, but for now, I need to keep sewing genie pants and togas!
