Pizza Dinner with my fab Rox

Where: Vyne Wine Bar NYC

With Who: The 301 Rockstars and Rangers

What was eaten: Some very delicious pizzas

Met with some of my lovely Rockette friends last week for pizza (and for them drinks!) I almost did not go… Well I might as well publicly announce this- I didn’t get my job back and I will not be returning to the Christmas Spectacular this season. It’s a bummer but I know that everything happens for a reason. After doing Urban Cowboy this summer, I just know that musical theatre is my true passion. I love Rockettes with all my heart and maybe will return someday to it, but for now I’m positive that there is some other road for me to find.

I love these ladies so much. During the season they were my family. Even though I was the baby of the group, they took me under their wing and treated me as an equal. It’s amazing how much they taught me about how to be a woman.

Once a Rockette always a Rockette!

Favorite Images from 2010

from personal photos to my photoshoots, here are my favorite photos from last year.

There are so many more images that I love from this past year, but of course I couldn’t put them all up. Can’t wait to see all the images that are created out of 2011.

Opening Night!

Last night was our official opening night at Radio City and it was spectacular!

It was so awesome to have my mom and Kevin in the audience cheering me on.

I love the 301 Rockstars. We’re so awesome! Sharing a dressing room with them is the best!

I’m beyond excited to have the show up and running. I love my job and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a famous line of women!

Invited Dress

Last night was our Invited Dress Rehearsal where we could invite family and friends to come see the show so that we could adjust to having an audience. It was so thrilling to look out and see an audience. I kept thinking to myself, “I can’t believe this is real.”

I was so lucky to have Annie, Jason, Johanna, Eric, and Jennifer there supporting me. I love them so much!

One more final dress rehearsal tonight and then our first show is tomorrow!!!!

Mom and Nat are arriving today!

Yah!!

Survived Tech!

Had an amazing week of tech! What a thrill it is to perform on the Great Stage. I started crying during the first time we did the shine kick line with music on stage. It’s the most incredible feeling to look out into that house with the lights shining up from the ground and see your legs kicking alongside the world’s famous kicking legs and realize, “Wow! This is real! Dreams do come come true.”

Tomorrow starts our first round of dress rehearsals. Can’t wait to get the costumes on and add that whole dimension to the show. First show is Friday!!! Mom and Nat get here on Thursday. It’s going to be an amazing week!

The Great Stage

Tomorrow starts my 2 1/2 month stay on the Great Stage of Radio City Music Hall. We’ve finished the rehearsal process and now moving on to tech rehearsals at the theatre. Our first show is a week from Friday. It’s all so soon and exciting!

Tech rehearsals are very long days so my blogging might become a little bit infrequent over the next few weeks but keep checking back. I just might post something! We’ll see…!

Sorry for the lack of posts

Here’s a little catch up.

Rehearsals are going well. My body and brain are surviving. Each day brings something new.

As for being homesick, I’m not feelin it too much. Don’t get me wrong, I miss my family and friends and all, but I’m very content here. Some days are hard but once I think about how awesome this all is, everything is fine again.

I love my fellow Rox, especially the other new girls. Its nice to make new friends. Taylor and I went shopping at Anthro today and went to see Mary Poppins (for my 3rd time!)

More blog posts soon. Sorry im getting behind. Love you all!

Vlogs

So I have a youtube account dedicated to my more “vloggy” videos vs. my performing vids. I’ve put up 3 videos recently.

The first one was when I was still in Htown. Bro-in-law, Ryan, was (and hopefully continue) teaching me how to drive. This was my first time “on the street” but it really was just down my block!

And the second is a video of me and one of my fellow brand new Rox, Paige, going waist deep in our ice bath for the first time!

Hope everyone is having a lovely week. I had my first reh with all the NY Rox today. It was crazy. I was overwhelmed and had a hard time focusing because I was just so in awe with how real this all is. Moving to NY, getting payed to do what I love… just living the dream. I’m looking forward to documenting more of my time of my first season as a Rockette.

xoxo.

Soreness

Started Rockette bootcamp on Friday and soreness has brought on a whole new meaning. I hurt so bad that i can’t even keep the phone at my ear without something hurting.

Nevertheless I’m having a great time and working my tail off.

Day off has also brought on a new meaning. So needed and loved are Sundays…

More blogging to come… but for now I must ice and then sleep.

Night!
