Hip Hop Show
I hip-hopped my little heart out on friday, and it went well I'd say. Word. We practiced the number backstage several times, so by the time we went out there I had the steps down, yo. (See how hip (hop) and urban I am now? Oooh, impressive.) Anyway, I got all the steps right, put lots of expression in, and had a very good time.

The only downside of the show was that, for some reason, they had decided to add stuff to the dance recital. Non-dance stuff. I don't know why the Off-key Singing Children From Hell were there, or who thought having them do a half hour's worth of painful selections from Sound of Music and other newly-ruined musicals was a good idea. The only good aspect of that atrocity was: (for the audience members who didn't flee in terror) our performance was so much amazingly better in comparison, we were a huge hit.

Having been warned ahead of time that the show was expected to be almost 3 hours in length, I actively discouraged attendance by anybody other than C, who I forced to come and take pictures (I wanted to have at least one fan there). C and I intentionally arrived late, though not late enough we discovered. It's a shame, because I would have loved to have my friends and family come watch me dance, I love to show off everything I've learned, but I simply couldn't subject them to a 3-hour show in order to see me dance for 2 minutes.

At home later that evening I played my downloaded version of the music and performed the dance for my sis and bro, complete with my midriff-revealing costume and a flashlight (for the light show). They thought it was cool, even the part where I forgot how small my livingroom was and slid right into the piano.

Sounds like a good time. :) Any shot of pictures / video-streaming for the rest of us? :)

Is there a good shareware tool for cropping the frame or cutting the length of an AVI and converting it to MPEG? (or whatever the best format is)

It was fun! I have a few video-snippets I'll attempt to post at some point.

Ye of Little Faith

Every year I go and watch my nieces for 2 minutes as part of a 3 hour show although the farthest I have driven was 20 minutes and for you it would be about an hour.

You own a piano?

What do you play on it?

Re: Ye of Little Faith

I got it for Christmas 2 years ago. I play stuff I can sing with....but not often enough.

lol...
that last part was certianly worth a good laugh...
(next time you at least ask your friends about attending while giving them the full scoop...)
a week ago or so I joined a few friends at a dance recital... sounded much like your's... long and full of plenty of silly antics from the little kids thank god, only a few tried singing, but it was mostly rather dull, punctuated by hilarity, but well worth the 2.5 hrs to see all of three dances a friend of ours was in...
glad it went well and you enjoyed yourself-
