Now for more serious talk.
What does a cow have to do with hooping? Nothing actually, rather than being used in the exclamation “holy cow” to state that it’s I haven’t had a performance to prepare for in a long time.
I realize that my first solo public performance was November 1st of last year. Remember The Chicken Dance? Lesson learned: hooping doesn’t quite work in a dirndl.
Oh, next came the Ephrata Talent Show, 50’s Family Night, The Studio Spin student recital, and then the World Hoop Day performances! Sheesh! I’ve had a busy year in that respect.
I feel sort of lost without a performance goal right now. It was something I thrived on. I love the payoff of a doing a performance, good or bad.
I noticed something the last time I performed, which was at the World Hoop Day show…..I didn’t get nervous. I just went out there and did my thing! Maybe I wasn’t because I was with friends or it was a stage that I performed on before, I don’t know. All I felt was a good feeling or anticipation.
So, holy cow, I was fortunate to get some performance experience! And I hope to get more.
