Saturday night was very busy for us… We had a total of four performances for the night! To be specific it was two individual performances by Sheri Amourr, one performance earlier in the night by me and one late night group performance with Sheri, Amy, and I with our brand spanking new choreography!
All of this was to participate in a show to support The Firehouse Gallery who has been running their own Indiegogo campaign to cover the costs of fixing the wiring for the building. The Firehouse has a place in my heart always. If you’re not familiar with it, the best I can explain it is that it’s a gallery, local and arts event space and burn platform for the creative patrons and stewards of the place. But if you ask anyone who’s been there it’s really so much more than that! As our home stage and launchpad, we’ve always loved the firehouse for being a long running platform for the many, many artists musicians and performers in Phoenix so when we heard about the show We jumped right in! And apparently we weren’t the only ones who were excited either! I mean just check out the poster:
The festival itself, Share Fire, was loads of fun. The acts did so well and the music sounded awesome. I even got to see a lot of bands I don’t get to see very often or hadn’t seen yet although I’d been meaning to for quite a while.
Just a week before the big night I got a message about a then-secret after party where we were invited to spin for the audience. Of course we said yes, knowing however, we didn’t have much time to come up with our routine. So as the risk takers and challenge lovers we are we set out to create and learn the choreography for the show, all the while not knowing if we were going to have all four of us or just three! To top it off, we had 4 days (make that 4 long, late, mosquito swarmed nights…) to make it up and get it down and even though we had yet to perform group choreography…I’d say we did pretty good…
