Hello world! This is my first ever blog and I’m not really sure what I’m doing! I started my first day at drama school yesterday. It was very scary. I had to get up at 6 o’clock in the morning and my parents drove me all the way down to Plymouth. Everyone was very welcoming at Italia Conti but most of the others joining yesterday were younger than me. I felt quite out of place.
The first class was singing, one of my favourite things ever so I couldn’t wait to give it a go. We did warm up exercises then sang together then some people sung solo in front of the class. They were amazing! Then I found my way to the next class which was jazz (dancing). I haven’t danced very much in the past so I was quite nervous. The others were younger than me but they were really good.
We did musical production next which is a mixture of things. We did a bit of dancing then sung a couple of Christmas songs (for the Christmas production) then did a bit of a routine to Little Mix’s Black Magic. This was really cool coz I love Little Mix.
After that was lunch, more singing and lots of acting. I loved the acting because it’s another one of my favourite things to do. Last class was modern (dance) which was ok but I’m not feeling very confident about my dancing.
Well it wasn’t too hard to write my first blog. I hope you enjoyed reading and will follow me on my journey. If you want to find out more about me and my dreams please read my About Me page and you can leave comments for me too – I’d love to hear from you.
what a brilliant thing to do – write a blog about this exciting next phase of your life. It reads very well and sounds as though you cracked the first day big-style. I reckon if you can sing, you can dance. It’s just about rhythm. I love to do both and you will, too, once you relax into it. Good luck with day two.
Thanks Anne that’s really helped me. I think you’re right – the key is rhythm. Great to hear you love to dance.
Well done Natasha it’s perfectly normal to be low in confidence with new things the more you practice the more confident you will become. Your amazing xx
Fantastic first blog post Natasha! Of course it’s normal to feel nervous; all that anticipation! I agree with Anne that dancing is all about rhythm, and if you’re enjoying yourself it will become easier as you go on. Remember everyone else will be feeling the same way – concentrate on yourself and don’t compare yourself to others too much…everyone’s a beginner at some point! xxx
