Since moving back to Houston I've found a home at Feijoo Ballet School teaching tap and theatre dance. Along with my regular classes, I have also kicked off a new performance series for the studio with our first production being this last month- Black Box on Broadway! We transformed their big studio into a Black Box theatre space with the help of some lighting installation, flat set pieces, fabulous costumes, and the splashy red show curtain.
Thanks to Harvey, we lost a good chunk of time out of our already short rehearsal process. I was in awe of how everything came together and couldn't have been more proud of my talented students! The structure of the show was review style, featuring the casts' unique talents and personalities in numbers from different Broadway musicals, classic and contemporary.
On our final performance I traded in my director's notepad for my camera and snapped some fun pics of my little gem of a show. (I sat next to our brilliant pianist, Ms. Jennifer, to conduct the music, therefor my view from the side was a bit limited for photo taking!)
Huge thanks to Lorna, Melissa, and Natalie for giving me this platform to help our students grow and develop into well rounded performers and human beings. Looking forward to doing it again in the Spring!
