Thursday was our ward talent show. I mentioned that I had been practicing a lot for it. This is because I was in 3 different acts. Wes and I always sing together, so I knew that we would sign up for that. We didn't really require practice though... I knew they wanted to perform Hairspray again... we got together 2 different nights for a couple hours each to go over it again. It took up some time... but not a lot.
Sunday... last Sunday, like 4 days before the talent show, I was sitting next to my friend Sarah. The talent show sign up was going around and she signs her an her roommate up for a tap act. She turns to me and asks if I want to do it with them. I light up with excitement as I accept the invitation. I love tap and hardly ever do it. That night I go over to their house thinking they already have something together since it is 4 days before the show. Nope! They know they want to do it to "Forget About the Boy" from the musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie". I was excited. Love that musical. So they quickly made up most of the dance. I quickly got worried about signing up with them because they are dancers, Sarah does theater, they both have a lot more dancing and performing experience than I do. I had also not tapped in like 6 years and they were pulling out a lot of dance moves that I had to see if I even remembered how to do. We practiced each night and I improved each night, but I still worried a little because I kept messing up. Two days before the talent show, Sarah decides she is going to sing it but didn't know any of the words. I asked her if she was worried. Of course not. ha ha. She is a pro, don't know why I even asked.
Talent show night, we were 4th on the program and I didn't mess up! Woohoo!! I was so happy. I was so impressed that we put that together and pulled it off in 4 days. Not only was it so fun to do... but everyone loved it. A few people even told me it was their favorite part of the talent show. This made me so happy. We had so much fun doing it together. I really need to dance more... I love it so much. Oh... and a little something we added to the song, there is a part where they name off all of these boys, and we replaced those names with the names of boys in our ward. The boys that were named felt so special, they loved it. ha ha. Everyone else thought it was pretty funny too. Anyway... there is the background behind it all, now I will be quite and let you watch it!
