Last week was a very lazy week for me as it was the first week that I didn’t have dance practice everyday since the semester started! On Saturday the 21st of March, Mayuri had a showcase in Goodhart auditorium, which went extremely well! Although we had a bit of a rough start, it ended better than I had expected. During the first piece we performed, we had a slight mishap with the music and we had to repeat a few of our steps to fall back in time. Luckily, it wasn’t too noticeable, and although we were slightly put off, we were able to push through with our second piece and overall finish successfully.
We all had such a wonderful time performing and really appreciated that so many amazing people came out to support us! Without all those who came being such a supportive audience, the show would not have gone down as well as it did. If you weren’t able to come out to the show, we will be posting the videos of our pieces on our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/bmcmayuri so you can go over there and check them out! Below are some pictures from our performance as well!
Overall, I am so happy and proud of our performance; we have been working so hard all year for our show and it has been so amazing to hear all the feedback and finally have been able to see the final product of all our efforts. It was such a surreal experience to have finished the show and, during our final bow, I really felt the sense of community and school spirit at Bryn Mawr from all the wonderful people who showed up to support us. This Friday is possibly our last performance of the year and it will be at Temple University for an event called Salaam Namaste 2015: The South Asian Carnival. If you are in the area, you should definitely stop by, as we will be performing my favorite piece of our repertoire and it will be a very fun time!
