It seems like absolutely no time ago that I was told my piece would be going to Canada and now in less than 2 weeks I’ll be on a plane to Toronto!
This will be the first time I’ve ever been to Canada and I’m really excited to see the school and meet so many international students!
I think I’m most looking forward to meeting the new cast that will be dancing my piece, and find out what they can offer to the material to make it their own. It might be difficult to get some of the pas de deux working, as these two dancers will never have met, but the challenge of this seems very exciting! I’m also really looking forward to taking class with the international dancers, and getting a chance to see how everyone works in class.
I feel like there’s so much to be learned from this experience and I just hope that the plane journey doesn’t tire me out too much!
