Hei guys!

I was just wondering if you've ever done a real blunder connected with dancing? I, for example, was so clever as to tie the ribbons on my pointe shoes in a bow one day during dress rehersals for a show. The leader of the dance scool came over to me and told me to tie them properly, while a whole group of slightly younger (but much more experienced) dancers stood listening, looking at me as though I was a complete fool. Of course, I realised quickly what a... well, fool I had been, which didn't exactly stop my face growing scarlet. So, anyone else broken some dance do or don't, or is it just me? :oops:

Hello, Airam...Well, we all learn from our mistakes, that's for sure! :lol: Don't let that bother you. I'm sure they have made their mistakes, as well... :) In the Mandolin Dance in "Romeo and Juliet", I was to "toss" the Mandolin to the young man in the trio (who happened to be my husband). I threw it so hard (not wanting to "miss") that I practically knocked the wind out of him!

My favorite "oopsie" occured when I was the 'Mad Hatter' in "Alice in Wonderland" and while on tour during one show, I realized that as soon as I got on stage with my 'party' group, I had forgotten my hat on the prop table. Boy, was I chagrined!

I had been used to taking care of all of my costumes and props myself, and when we had the luxury of performing at a theatre that provided staff for us, and my hat was brought to the prop table for me, I just didn't think of it. And was we were all holding hands for the party scene, I couldn't just leave and to get it! :roll:
