Week 6 Rearsals, Loret and Anton du Methx
Sitting on the floor, against the wall of the rehearsal room,
Loret and Anton discuss plans for this week's final program
Sounds like anything goes, any dance you want to do, so what were our favorite dances?
They decide, "The Waitz" and "the DASO-doble". Can we do both? Costumes too different. Well, maybe... For the Waitz, the dress will have a long skirt, some kind of elegant trimming, red satin with black satin lining, and a tear-away front panel, to be ready for the DASO, then, underneath, she will wear black satin shorts, black fish net stockings, and the remainder of the dress of course will go into the next dance
Anton will wear a black tuxedo, with red satin cumberbun. During the beginning strains of the DASO, she will twirl around and release the front panel, which Anton will take and immediately use for his cape.
The music: "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher
and "If I Could Turn Back Time" also by Sonny and Cher
The Finals night has arrived, we're so scared, nervous, hungry (well yeah, every time I'm scared and nervous, I get hungry But we are doing this for fun, I never intended to get this far, just signed up to see if I could still write stuff! Well, here they go.....
They stand at opposite corners, in front of the Orchestra, and as the music starts, they drift toward each other, their arms entwine, they step lightly into the beat, gliding, swirling, approaching center stage, he sends her out to the end of his arm, brings her back, lifts her above his head, turns twice around and lightly sets her down to begin the routine dance steps again to the far side of the floor, then another out to the end of his reach, back into his arms and lifts her up above as she seems to float through the air, her red satin gown trailing behind, and down he brings her again...and the music changes to the beat of "If I Could Turn Back Time", as she unsnaps the front panel of her skirt, and he lifts it away above his head as he stomps and prances the first steps of the DASO-doble, swirling the red and black "cape" towards her and she dances and twirls and swirls the sides of her black-lined red satin skirts. She sinks to the floor as he embraces her, the conqueror has done it!
Imagine that she is the victim of RA and he, her saviour--the Biologic that has conquered the Beast!
