The Touring Life

November 28, 2001

Traveling is a big part of a tour. Today, the Ballet Grand Prix group of students took an eight hour long bus trip! The drive took us to our destination in Alabama, where we would spend the night and rest for another four hour drive the next day. While on the bus, my friends and I played games, caught up on sleep, watched movies and enjoyed each others company. This long trip enabled everyone to get to know one another a little better. In all, the day was pretty relaxing and helped the dancers to revive their energy from the opening performance in Germantown. The next city that the tour is performing in is Charleston, South Carolina. I’m really looking forward to dancing again. This tour makes me feel exposed to a whole different side of performing and I am more than ecstatic to be able to do this. Touring to different cities makes performing a lot more fun! 

Off to dance,
