No – but I have to do it anyway! Tonight is the night. We practised our shuffle draw-backs, our para diddles and most importantly the time-step since September. Tonight while waiting in the darkness in the wings of the stage I will wonder if it was enough.
This is the weirdest feeling ever: Time stands still while you wait in the darkness, glimpse the group that is dancing on stage, trying to prevent your heart from jumping out of your chest. Just breathe, just breathe.
Then the stage turns dark, you walk on, lights on, the music starts and off you go. (Don’t stumble and remember to SMILE!!!) It is all over in what feels like seconds. ( It is 3:31 minutes, actually)
Wish me luck!
