Chaînés, Brisé , Pirouette, and Assemblé
Excuse me! Pardon me! If you could. . . just let me through this curtain here. . . Excuse me, Danseuse coming through.
Hi, It's me, Noodles the Ballerina Pug. I have been away these many days dancing my way INTO the Holiday Season. I love to dance, really.
Right after Thanksgiving my Mommys and me were at the stage making sets, adding lights and practicing our dances. That was a lot of work, too. It took all day Friday and all day Saturday to make the magic happen for 3 shows on Sunday.
The above picture is of the opening number. It was so lovely and ethereal AND WINTERY! And by Wintery I mean it was kinda Christmas-y or Hanukkah-y because when it was over everyone was in such a Holiday mood!
There were a couple of cute dances to "Polar Express" and the costumes were of gingerbread people, candy canes, elves, and so on. I really wanted to be in one of these dances but the DIRECTOR AUNTIE D said there was NO PLACE for a pug in those dances. Harrrrumph. They made me hungry with all the candy, cookie and hot chocolate accessories.
When it was all over we were all really really TIRED and a lot SAD. The showcase is hard work but so rewarding. I love it.
Mommys and me took ALL DAY Monday off and sat on the couch watching Christmas movies and sipping hot cocoa (not me, sigh). It was the perfect ending to a perfect show.
