Now – That’s a practice!
My favorite practices are the rehearsals right before a performance! The practices right before a show or a performance are for run throughs, reviewing and cleaning up last minute details You can see all the weeks and months of fixing formations, changing steps, and confirming head nods come together into a final masterpiece that is ready to show off to the world.
These practices are also the ones that involve the most work on the backend. You’re making sure that costumes fit, that props are not missing/falling apart, that everyone knows their spots, dancers are remembering last minute changes, tickets for the event are purchased, and everyone has all information regarding the performance (address, reporting time, performance time, the right version of the mix etc.).
But when it comes to the reason as to why we’re here and why we do what we do – there is no other practice that really brings everything and everyone on the team together.
