Thanks so much to all the well wishes! The performance went pretty well except for one minor snafu (which was not my fault).
I was actually performing at the Spring Festival at Berkeley, not the Earth Day Festival like I thought. My bad! =D It’s a small international fair put on by the students. We got there at 10:45ish and spent the next 2 hours putting on make-up and getting dressed. 2 hours of prep for a 10 minutes performance. Yayness. @_@
Of course everything was running waaaay late, so I was standing around backstage forever. I hate the waiting part because, of course, that’s when you decide: you’re hungry (can’t eat, in costume), have to go to the bathroom (can’t go, in costume) and you’re head starts to hurt from the costume (uuugh the costume).
Performance went decently well from where I was on stage. My voice dropped out of falsetto briefly because I was too busy trying to breathe and get through a more active section of the dance. I was totally kicking myself for letting it happen, but guess what? The portable mic they clipped on me and told me worked? It didn’t. I didn’t even realize it until I got off stage and they told me, but no one could hear me. Again.
