After the auditions what was next? First things first everyone had to have their one-to-one session with Delilah Dance to discuss the their role and the story line. Delilah is the productions' director, 'mummy' and mastermind. This is her baby that she is working on, with us, to bring to life. You instantly feel warmth and energy from Delilah, she is so passionate about this project that you can't help but admire her for her vision and all the hard work that she has put in so far - it's infectious. Delilah will be mentoring and tutoring us as we develop our characters, choreograph our solos and rehearse to pull off this national belly dance spectacular. My first piece of homework was to read her book Performance Mastery to aid us with preparing our choreography for the theatre platform. The book is very comprehensive and poses some very good questions to the dancer. My main struggle with choreographing and developing my dance scenes is that I keep distracting myself with other tasks. Naughty me...
