I didn’t write this week, because we didn’t have much going on. The company turned its focus to preparing for the NYCDA convention, where they will once again compete.
Julian’s not too excited about going to this convention. He says three in a row was too many. Plus, he wanted to attend a dance the Jewish organization he is just about to join is putting on that night. (Plus, he has a big English assignment due next Friday that he needs to do this weekend, and he won’t have any time until Sunday night. Needless to say, that class is his worst grade…and I won’t tell you how bad.)
Two weeks from now I’m going to take Julian to UCLA to see the dance department. My daughter will be touring the school and the theater department, so Julian will get a college head start and tour the dance department two years early.
While we are in LA, we might see if he can go to Debbie Allen’s dance studio for a class or two. We plan on looking into that this weekend. He won’t be able to make it down there for the tap festival this year, since it conflicts with Julian’s studio’s summer intensive, although we had hoped to go and maybe slip in a class or two with Debbie at that time. Instead, we’ll be at the San Francisco Tap Festival. Probably better for us, since we will have just gotten back from NYC after the American Ballet Theatre summer intensive. (By the way, we are now actively looking for a rental in NYC from June 13 through July 24 or 28. Let me know if you have any leads.)
Other than that, not much new here. I’ve been very busy with work. I’ll try to write more next week. In the meantime, we’re off to another convention bright and early tomorrow…have to be there at 7:45 a.m.
