    Is showing tan lines at a showcase bad?

    Well, I have mini-showcase tomorrow night and I tried my dress on again today and realize that I have some tan lines on my shoulders. It's a halter type dress and it seems I got a little too much sun one weekend. I don't look like a truck driver, but you can see it on both of my shoulders (I had a tank top on, I guess).

    Is this going to look dumb? I'm not into spray tanning and don't think I have enough time to order any pro-type self tanners. Are there drugstore brands that would take me (my upper back) a shade or two darker?

    Or should I just fuhgetaboutit.

    And when you get your hands on an edited version, PLEASE send it my way! I'm using it myself in December...

    You wanna talk about timing? My showcase is June 1 and we JUST finished getting David to choreograph it on Tuesday! Talk about hella scary...especially since he put in freakifying leg trick towards the end (see post earlier in this thread).

    Oh...forgot to mention music, LOL. It's a VW to "On Again Tonight" by Trent Willmon. Clip here:

    Understand...the only reason I don't do a VW is b/c there are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many that I adore to ever narrow it down

    am feeling very left out...*pout*

    dance budget this year does not allow for showcase, maybe next year. Until then am living vicariously through you all...

    I downloaded it and definately hear how VW will work, as well as FT, Tango and QS. Knowing your pro, this is going to be very cool. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    Yes, I hear VW in the beginning of "Come on Closer."

    Stopped by LeNique on my way out to scrutineer the UC Berkeley competition, to get fitted for my costume for my show case. Purple trousers, cream frilled shirt, purple velet vest :) Definitely fun :)

    My thoughts exactly! LOL...just what are you doing for this showcase, Nielsie?

    My dress:

    It's the red gown shown in the bottom right corner--but I'll be doing it in black velvet, minus the float, and shortened to about tea length. Plain and simple, no stones or even sparkly jewelry to go with it. What can I say, it fits the routine.

    If I can figure out how to email it to you, I'll do that. Otherwise, though, I know it's on iTunes, because that's where I got it.

    No idea about what I'll be wearing. I haven't brought it up, because I'm still refusing to acknowledge that it's actually happening. Asking him about it would make it real, and I refuse to do that. Besides, it would encourage him.

    Still though, I haven't been able to dislodge him from the "me doing showcase" thought. Which means I should put some thought into what to wear. And waltz-tango-foxtrot to do with my hair, since it flops in my face with every turn.

    Any ideas, people? Please?

    probly just hold the 3 over the 4, but we could also do a triplet to 4/4 like you would with an instrument. i remember loving that when i played piano. we'll see when we get to that bit...

    I have seen many a nice practice skirt and matching leotard with some simple jewelry or scaves as adornment that looked far better than some lavish dress scenario

    July 7. The practice wear is a good idea--the MD comp would be possible.

    Granted, I don't know that usual practice wear would work with "Call the Law." Something of an incongruous image.

    Edit to add...will have to play with my hair when it's wet from a shower and see what that looks like. Stupid sticky-out-y ears...

    add some got to B glu after you shower and let it dry that way...add large earrings which look good on sticky out ears...and, lol, some of the pracitce wear at comps is uh, very unconventional....
