Got home late, just about to settle for the night. Took half day leave today to drive Mira to her pre-rehearsal at the hall. We left just after 4pm, luckily because it rained on the way. We only got there at about 5pm!
She's supposed to report herself in at half past five. We had plenty of time to chill before that.
After I've handed her over to the chaperons, I went upstairs to wait. Took the chance to check out the seats that I bought for this Sunday. Not bad... not bad at all. I'm very happy with my choice.
I think, after numerous concert-going occasions, unless it is something that you really need to look up close, seating as high as you can is the best choice. Why? Because you want to be able to see the whole dance formation or routine. If you seat too close to the stage, you may see be able to see your kid but you wont be able to see her dance, right?
So yeah, I like my seats. Can see the whole stage from where I'm at.
After Mira's group has performed, I took her upstairs so we can change her out of her costume. That was about quarter to seven. She wanted to stay for a bit to see the others perform. We ended up staying until nine!
The first to practice was the Pre-primaries. If I remember correctly, they were dancing to Lilo & Stitch. After that there was another class from a different centre before it was Mira's turn.
You can see the higher the grade, the more polish the performance and the kids more organised. Lol.
There were the usual ballet performances, tap dance, modern, salsa and broad way styled. Not only the kids performed, but some of the teachers, too.
Oh, and if you have a son who likes to dance, get him to learn tap dance (if you think ballet is too sissy lah). There were two boys performing together in one of the tap dance routines and they looked so cool!
The show's coming along nicely, I feel. There'll be a full dress rehearsal this Friday evening before the first show on Saturday and then another on Sunday.
I am looking forward to it, actually ^_^
