Backwards. Three and a half minutes of a complex dance routine, done from end to beginning. It's kind of like trying to say the alphabet backwards, only with your whole body, not just your mouth. Or writing your full name, in cursive, backwards -- try it, it's hard! To make this more difficult, we haven't practiced since sunday, and the beginning part of the program we haven't worked on in a couple of weeks. We didn't do a forward reminder runthrough to begin with, so I was having trouble remembering some parts of the number forwards, let alone try to reverse it.
I was so completely confused! We all were! Plus, of course, it was 11:30pm, so everybody was fairly giddy and giggly anyway. It was really silly and hard and confusing, but we got through it with a lot of laughter. Twice, I found myself next to somebody I wasn't supposed to be next to. We would look at one another in confusion, then glance around, and suddenly realize what we'd done wrong and where we were supposed to be. Then we'd back up and try again.
Eventually, we succeeded, and found our way back to the beginning. The whole effort only took us about 10 minutes, for a 3.5 minute program!
