I don't know if you know, but I am one of the many chosen volunteers to take part in the Opening Ceremonies of the London 2012 Games. Back in November I went on an general audition (I was randomly chosen out of thousands that applied) and got a call back for a more role specific audition in December. At the middle/end of January I got the official cast offer letter via email. It was all very exciting. Originally I was going to be in a more character movement role, but at the last minute I was contacted about taking part in a more dance themed role. The former dancer and current fat ass in me said yes. Well, last night was my first rehearsal. While I cannot say anything about the actual stuff we are doing, I can tell you it's going to be A-Mazing!!!
The whole show is going to be directed by Danny Boyle who I met last night! What a lovely man. And the whole show will see viewed by about 4 billion people (that's no exaggeration here people, I do mean 4 billion!) Its so so so very exciting, but I do have a long road ahead of me. Its been a while since this girl has been at a dance class, I'm a little rusty. But I am up for the challenge!
