I misspoke yesterday when I said I was going to a Purre Barre Class, I actually went to the Bar Method studio which I’m sure is quite similar but just a different brand! Anyway, I woke up at 7 to study at Starbucks (and enjoy some coffee and lemon bread for breakfast) and my friend Caroline picked me up at 10:30!
Everyone who checked us in was sweet and helpful and they were sure to ask about any injuries or things we were unable to do. I really appreciated that because instructors come around and fix your form but when I wasn’t bending backward she knew exactly why.
We did a lot of isometric leg work and I was feelin’ the burn! It didn’t help that my legs were already super sore from my circuit the day before. Dumb, Georgia, so dumb. My legs were quaking at one point. We had to go up on pointe and hold a squat and they were literally bouncing up and down. So embarrassing. hah!
Though I think this is an incredible form of exercise, I am not planning to drop the money for a class pass. I already have a 150 dollar Texercise pass to Gregory gym and I barely have time to make it to enough of those! I am planning on getting a DVD though. I love that this workout tones without impact and incorporates stretching as well. I’m sold.
After heading back to Starbucks to pound out some bio with my study buddy Jacob, it was time to get ready for my Disney Character Auditions!
I applied for the Disney College Program a while ago which in an internship in either Disneyland or Disney World. I could be doing anything from a wide variety of jobs, but there is also the option to try out for a performing role so I thought, “Why not?!?” It was such a fun process!
I met Sheri (on the left) in line and then we ran into Scott (right) and Yohann (not pictured) a little later and we hung out for the duration of the audition. They were so fun and easygoing! I was already glad I came just because I got to meet them
The audition included a parade sequence, dance routines, and animation routines (such as pretending to plant a tree, wash a dog, ect.). I made it to the final round!! I was so happy!! That doesn’t mean I got a part as they go to many cities, but I was just so proud that after not dancing for so long I could still pull it out.
I was there from 3:30-8:30 and I hadn’t eaten since two, so once I left I made a beeline for Whole Foods and devoured a lemon chicken bowl. Seriously. I considered opening it up in line as I was waiting to pay, but somehow restrained.
Once I’d eaten I picked up some groceries, came home, and went to bed! My legs are soooooore today. No workout on the agenda, just lots of studying and lunch with my dad. I hope your weekend was as great as mine!!
Have you ever auditioned for anything? What was the process like? Was it fun or scary?
