I know that you all are probably well versed at dancing from every angle and probably most every shape of stage, so I wanted to get some input and direction from you. We are going to be performing at a venue, that I just found out yesterday, is going to have a U shaped stage, like you would have for a runway show. What is going to be our best angle? There are 4 of us in our troupe, how would we situate ourselves that we can still have a high energy show, without looking awkward? I will not actually be able to see the stage until the morning of the performance, but we wanted to get some ideas that way we can be formulating a plan. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! br/br/Thankyou so muchbr/br/Cyreigna

When I think if a U, I think of toppling over towards one side or another. br/br/Otherwise, Id do something like a Dueling Duet, where there would be two in the front of the U, facing, and the others on the arms of the U angled towards their leaders. It would be totally non-traditional, but I think it could work. If theres enough room to change places, it could be interesting. There could even be parts where the front duet do their thing and the back duet face and do another thing, as if to flank the front duet. It sounds like a fun challenge!br/br/Good luck!

    Originally posted by Cyndi Cyreigna on tribe.net.Thanks Sandi! I have been playing with this in my head all day, and have come up with some really fun ideas. I thought about the dueling duets also, I was almost afraid of giving the audience too much to look at. Like I said, I dont know how big the stage is, so I dont know how far apart we will be. This is going to be a fun challenge to figure out, cant wait to see what happens! 🙂 By the way, in regards to dueling duets, when does the leader change? Does one side always lead it or do they switch at some point when the music dictates? This has been something I have wondered about for a while, we do them, but I always worry about it getting predictable to the audience when they figure out whose leading. Thanks again!

I have 4 pairs of shoes -- one for every "situation" now. Wendy turned me on to great shoes for pavement/cement. I have dance/ballet flats for other surfaces, china flats for others, etc etc. But I was on a stage... "stage" ... that none of those helped. So bring everything you have and evaluate if you need to. Better safe than have hurt feet/toes, etc.br/br/oxox Cyregina!br/br/Leslie
