Posted:....For a professional dance company here in WNY.
I was so nervous. I must've practiced my routine a million times this morning. Actually, this woman made a special audition time for me because I couldn't make the proper auditions last week due to a performance....so I was really afraid of messing up and wasting her time, which added even more pressure.

She told me how nearly 50 people had auditioned already, only 10 would make it.....
So I did my piece feeling really not confident, especially because part of the routine was improv....

And got accepted ON THE SPOT!

Not only that but she was so impressed she wants me to teach at her studio starting in two weeks!
I was bopping all over in my car on the way home and wanted to share this with all of you! (and for those of you wondering, this is not a bellydance group. I am still in my bellydance troupe Hipchik Raks too, but this is for a company of modern fusion dancers.)

8 months ago I could barely walk and now...I am flying! Thank you all for the support and faith and everything!

Posted:Woot! Congratulations Pele. I am glad that instead of just sitting down after the accident, you got back up, and started getting involved.

And getting accepted on the spot! Congratulations.

In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."

Posted:Pele - you are an inspiration to all of us that have had setbacks in life. Despite all you went through you did not give in and you truly deserve your success.

(btw - how did that other dance thing turn out?) Ade, the show you are referring to I am doing in June (Solstice weekend).
I have been performing with my bellydance troupe a couple times a month since our formation a few months ago and it has been going very well!

Best thing is with the new company, the director of the company is interested in the props I use, and possibly incorporating them into some of the dances! YAY!

Seriously, thanks everyone for sharing my joy. I am still all bouncy from it!

Posted:Yep, quite right - hopefully you will get as much out of the experience as they will get out of you in a karmically complete kind of way.

Good one Pele

Dance like it hurts; Love like you need money; Work like someone is watching.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. That way, when you DO criticize them, you are a mile away, and you have their shoes.
