Spring In Our Midst 2010,
30 May 2010
The Jumping Jewels where one of two guest performers at this Tampines
Arts Troupe dance concert. This gave the dance performers time to
change their extensive costumes. We had to constantly adapt our
preparation as 5 of 10 Jewels performing where down with fever on the
day of performance. As we needed at least 8 skippers for the prepared
choreography, Ariel and Amy had to perform after visiting the doctor
and Claire who came for Sunday practice was roped in.
Fortunately the concert was next door at the Tampines Cultural Centre
at Tampines East CC, so our holding area was at our studio. This gave
us time to get Claire ready. The show must go on and so we did with 8
Cultural dance performancers usually get a polite applause at the end
performances. For our performance we got 3 sets of applause, 2 during
the performance. I guess the audience liked our performance.
There is a chalet outing organized by the dance troupe
on 6th June to mingle and relax which will be
another day out for the Jewels. This has been a great learning
experience working with cultural dance people and I am sure we will
learn more at the chalet.
