Keep in shape mind and body -

Yes, you are planning for a brief departure quite nicely and I must say with confidence.

You have the opportunity to go into a trance state everyday while traveling and rehearse your pieces. Remember that this is not thinking them through, but watching them in motion in full sensory expression. As if you are watching a movie. This is just as important as your physical practice.

Without a doubt you will stretch, work out and walk perhaps while vacationing? You are in such good shape, you want to go and have fun with out this worry. It may take you a few days to get your stamina back, yet it is not all or nothing. You just returned quite beautifully from a longer break.

STOP. Enjoy life and take a breather.
Write and tell us where you are? Maybe you can take in a ballet?

Love you all,

Dear Sanna - Cool

So the way things have been going, it appears that I might actually go back into the soloist role I am missing out on while I'm away. But if not, I will definitely go back to do my normal part and I would be fine with that. I am also less nervous that there will be no parts for me when I come back. There seems to be a need for me, and I am just really not stressed out about it.

I rehearse everything in the back full out, and the other day when I was doing the variation the director even gave me corrections and said it was good. More than anything, I am just afraid in the two weeks I am gone I will get out of shape and it will be hard to get back into it, but I will pass that, too.

So basically I am just working really hard for myself and looking forward to my trip - next week already! Hopefully everything doesn't change while I'm gone, but once it's over I have a feeling people will quickly forget about it. I will remember this trip forever, though :)

Dear Sanna - Back! (for a bit)

I can't believe we won an award! Thanks to the readers for contributing to the success of this blog! Yay go us :)

Sorry for the long break, by the way. Not only did I just recently get back to work, I was also having internet issues up until now. It has been a very busy week so far, trying to get back into shape, remembering everything, taking in all the new. It is going to be an exciting year - I am thrilled to see many new dancers in the company, all eager to work. I think it will be a good boost for the work ethic and morale of the whole group.

Unfortunately, there is a slight hiccup in the beginning of my year. You might remember the trip I spoke of in July? Well it is coming up fast. On the first day back at work, we had rehearsal for a part we did all last year. I was the understudy for a main role, which I did perform a few times. That girl left the company, so I was cast in that role. Then I heard that the first performance is the day after I return. So I had to go to the ballet mistress and explain, asking if the director hadn't told her anything. So for the time being I am just doing a few of my corps spots in that ballet. I hope I will go back into the part when I return, but I don't know. Then I had to be replaced in the first new thing we are working on, because there is also a performance of that while I'm away.

It doesn't necessarily mean anything. It could be bad, and when I return I will continue doing nothing until there is a new ballet to cast. It could be great - I could continue to not do corps roles and end up performing mainly soloist parts. It could be a moot point and I will go back to my usual spots when I get back. Who knows? The director is of course not thrilled that I am leaving, but isn't being too too horrible towards me. I can just work hard and hope for the best.

HypnoDIning Helps Performers with Stress Eating!

I have created a class to help with stress & emotional eating. If you have this struggle, you know how it feels AND it takes your energy and focus away from your performance. When the body is preparing from performance or audition, energy rises and there are sensations in the stomach are misread as anxiety and fear.

A common response it to reach for food or sugar drinks to silence it. For relief. This cretaes problems in the system and takes you away from your power.

What if you could discover a way to eat more mindfully? To care for your bodily needs with nonfood approaches to empowerment?

You can end this struggle with food and love eating again.

Email me for a FREE consultation.

Thank you --
You want to do your best ... Taking care of your dancing body is paramount.
