Opening Ceremonies

Just finished with opening ceremonies and a rising performance by Rasta Thomas and The Bad Boys of Dance. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The afternoon rehearsal was a mess: or like “managing a large kindergarten pageant” as Brooke Wyatt described it.

The opening ceremony introduces the audience to the 119 competitors, 13 judges, 11 faculty, 2 evaluators, and the chairman of the board: ….no, not Frank Sinatra- Bruce Marks. It is done with the same type of parade of nations and lighting of the torch as we see in the sports Olympic every four years.

Did I mention it is incredibly HOT and HUMID here.

Let the first round begin.
