Girrrrrrrrrrrrrrl. It's about that time! Get ready to slay 'em out there on the stage. I am a big believer in "if you look good you feel good," and if you feel good, you will turn it OUT on stage. Can we kiki for a minute?
There are two things that are true in this world: Watch your fucking face, and YouTube is forever. Get into it! Make them eat it! When I go out on the stage, I just pretend I am a drag queen...specifically Alyssa Edwards. Not only is she my favorite, she owns a kids' dance company in Texas, where she breeds tiny girls into drag queens. She "doesn't get cute, she gets drop dead gorgeous." Google her... you're welcome.
She has complete confidence and owns every minute of her performance. We have been working so hard for this for 10 weeks! Getting up early, coming home late, missing out on time with family and friends... so you better make it worth it on Saturday, Jan 31st hunty!
Get your hair right, your makeup right, your choreo right. And most importantly - your face! Ain't nobody paying $15 to see you NOT kill it girl. People are coming to be entertained! Get yourself a good judy in the dressing room that Saturday, beat your mug and feel your oats. Perform for the Gods. I can't wait to get all up in this gig, girls.
Alyssa's mantra though: "Kick dip, spin, pose...watch us turn the party on these hoes."
