I stayed late at work today because I had the opportunity to watch rehearsals for an event tomorrow night! Madonna’s daughter is launching her clothing line at Macy’s so they’re having a big launch party and it wouldn’t be a party without dancers!
So last week there were second round auditions for the dancers (which I got to help with and watch!) and yesterday and today were rehearsals for the performance tomorrow night.
The rehearsal went late so I couldn’t stay for the whole thing, but the 45 minutes I did stay and watch were really good. The choreography was so intricate and fast I couldn’t believe how much they’d learned in just one night of rehearsal! I really hope I’ll get to catch a video of the final product since I don’t think I’m on the guest list for Madonna’s party, ha.
Anyway, all of that isn’t even the coolest part. Because as I type this rehearsal is still going on and MADONNA HERSELF IS THERE.
And I’m sitting here in the Bronx because I didn’t want to take the subway too late.
April, my supervisor, just texted me to tell me that she showed up unannounced and came to watch rehearsal. So freaking cool! I wish I had stayed but at the same time I would’ve been so embarrassed to meet her in my sweaty dance clothes, smelling disgusting from two dance classes. Still though.
I have the coolest job ever.
