Even with a successful season, you can’t make everyone happy. And, what even defines it as a success?
I am filled with a mix of emotions as I look back at the past season with Sasso & Company. There have been a lot of hurdles along the way, but overall I would say we had a successful season.
Dance shows always leave me with this mix of euphoria and sadness; something that I call “the post show blues.”
There is a sense of wow we pulled this off. We made dance and people paid to come out and see it. Then you remember all of the little mistakes: a turn that didn’t go perfectly, a strap that fell off, hair that stuck in your lipstick, a lift that you thought was going to fall, and you start to wonder how the audience felt about the show.
If you have read some of my other posts, you’ll realize that the list of worries in the world of dance and live performance is seemingly longer than the list of positives.
