Nutcracker 2013

I'm not one for making a post specifically about me.. but... I had too! :)
I posted about it last year so I thought, why not again!

The past week has been a very tiring week. I love and hate shows. Seriously, they're ridiculously fun, but SO stressful! I get to spend long nights with my friends, laughing, and dancing. However, at the end of the day, your toes hurt, you're hair is gross, you smell bad, and you're oh so sore.
Don't get me wrong, I love being a dancer, it just has it's moments.

This year was big because all the 'advanced' seniors weren't here. So everyone stepped up.
I was SO excited when I found out I was in Arabian.

Watching the dance it looks SO simple and easy, but no. That dance is crazy tiring!  

I know this picture stinks but I had to show of my splits. It took long enough to get them there! :) And there's a story...
So about a month ago in rehearsals, Margaret (My partner) and I were practicing Arabian. We go to do the splits and I failed to go down.. er.. smoothly. My back, be wonderful like it is, decided, "Ow, Emma, that hurt..". So I was in utter back pain for at least a week and a half. Then it finally felt better, but my splits were hideous looking, because my back hurt every time I did them. Any other time I wouldn't care, however the splits are the main part of Arabian, they had to look good. Thankfully yesterday it didn't hurt and they looked good, so yeah!!

Well I guess I've bored you guys enough with myself! Have a good week! :)

Beautiful Emma! You look beautiful and talented! :)

It's good to show yourself off and brag every once and a while. Boosts your self-esteem.

Wow! I 'm really impressed! Dancing on pointe, doing the splits, (I seem to be particularly un-stretchy!) I bet you were very graceful! =) The Arabian outfit is really pretty.
