Anything to Note =

I don’t feel these days that rehearsals are enough physically to count as cardio – we are working through things so I just don’t feel like its enough to count as raising my heartbeat. As we are approaching our opening of our show we are working through things and realize that it doesn’t make sense for my character to be a part of all the dance choreography sections that I learned so I will see when we get to run the whole show how much of a workout it will end up being. Although we added a little bit of athleticism for me today to raise me up….sound intriguing?? Get ready for Loom Ensemble’s “Erosion: A Fable” that opens at LaMama February 17th!!


So thus lightly jogging home from a few subway stops earlier than when I would get off was my cardio tonight. Although, I wanted to take it lightly but I had to fight the urge to just full-out speed run home! The backpack I had on helped to keep me slow as I shouldn’t be speed running after 11pm!! I got myself all ready on the subway – ipod arm pouch on, ipod in, sweater off, backpack tight, music on….GOOOOO!! People always find it funny to see someone jogging with a backpack on or not in full workout clothes 🙂

I was excited tonight as on shuffle came a wonderful Greek song, and I realized that I hadn’t danced to any Greek songs yet which is outrageous! This is a great song as it’s a traditional or close to traditional Greek belly dancing song – or perfect for it. I forgot how much of a workout Greek female belly dancing is! Having to keep my arms up for basically the whole song really works the arm muscles!! And my legs were feeling it so either it was me not used to the slow long movements or I danced too close after jogging home! Either way, I was happy to have some Greek music! Must have more of that!

Ahhhhh. Now, I miss Greece, Spetses Island, home. Boo 😦

My improvised video upload was fun tonight too – I did another one of my favourite characters who speaks a made-up language….or does she??!! It is sooo much fun to speak your mind in something so free. I think my gibberish language is pretty good actually, if I do say so myself haha! Take a peek at my ZoeTheActor wordpress blog!
