30 Days

shadow

TODAY…. I have 30 days until my premier of Snow Queen.

Mentally, I am ready to step onto that stage right now to feel the lights make my heart glow, unleashing everlasting rays of happiness and joy that sends the audience up out of their seats. I hope to give the audience the Christmas experience that they came for and become a memorable part of their Christmas celebration. 🙂 Physically, however, my brain is overflowing with steps and my muscles are slowly transforming into noodle-like material, replacing the instrumental quality that use to guide my dancing. Despite of all of the rehearsal time, we still have tons of dances that need to be finished/started! It is 30 days away, and the countdown has begun. 30 days… Just 30 days…

I have some wonderful news!!!!!!!!!!!!

*As you may already know, I submitted a poem to the America Library of Poetry a few months ago… I truly wasn’t expecting much, because I was competing against 50 ENTIRE STATES OF COMPETITORS. Out of the thousands of poems written, they notified me that they want to publish my poem in a book called, Treasured!! They said, ‘less that 20% of the authors we read will have the honor of seeing their work in print.’ I am absolutely elated to have been chosen for this, and I am looking forward to the placement results on September 30th… I am hoping that I make it in at least top 20. I love poetry so much, so I am getting very anxious for the results…. I will keep you all updated, and I will post my poem for you all to read in a few days! 🙂

7-6-5-4-THREE DAYS until I leave for my summer intensive program away from home! I will be dancing with outstanding teachers, incredible dancers, and unbelievable choreographers while improving my skills. I am so blessed to have been given this opportunity, and I am really looking forward sharing my experiences with you! Get ready for some serious dancing, Maysa Rose!
