What a run! After months of training, rehearsing, perfecting choreography, and coordinating between dancers, stage crew, costumers, photographers and Directors, (to name a few), the Alameda Civic Ballet’s Nutcracker 2013 was a success! With only two days of live performances, there wasn’t much room for error! That’s more than can be said for a wedding – which has only ONE chance to get things right!
There is definitely a correlation between a live ballet performance and that of a ‘live’ wedding or event. Couples go through months of planning for their big day, coordinating with planners, caterers, florists, bakers and musicians (to name a few), with only one chance for all to come together to play out one of the biggest performances of their life!
This is where I feel my ‘work’ is ongoing – whether it be working behind the scenes as a Ballet Mistress (also referred to as a Rehearsal Director/Directors Assistant) preparing dancers for upcoming performances, or working behind the scenes as a Wedding Planner/Coordinator helping couples plan for their upcoming wedding or special event!
I feel that my work stays constant from the ballet world to the world of weddings – literally keeping me on my toes!
Follow me on my journey where I will continue to help couples, and dancers alike, plan for their performance of a lifetime!
