If anyone is in the Regina area (looking at you, Saskatoon dancers!) on July 29, make sure to stop by the Regina Performing Arts Centre at 7pm to see Tavria (Regina) and Tryzub (Calgary) put on a show.

It should be great fun, and tickets are only $10.

Awesome. Tryzub outdid themselves. I have to wait to see outselves before I comment on that. One thing I do have to say is that I envied their longer costume changes! 8 dances in a row with 3:30 each time including staircase running is not fun!

But in the end it all worked great...except for our Hopak which closed the show. The music cut out about 3:00 into the dance...which left us to dance the remaining 3:00 of the main portion on clapping alone (but thanks to Tryzub who led the cheer from backstage...even if the tempo was a little off, hah). We didn't get to perform the encore, but the standing ovation from the crowd for pulling it off (apparently pretty well, despite the look of horror on our faces in the first2 seconds) made it worth while.

Plus the party afterwards wasn't too shabby...

...well, until our lovely "uniformed friends" arrived. Hah.

Heh, that I did. In fact at one point someone asked during the substantial snack if anyone knew who "pitchko" was and I promptly yelled out "Pitchko!?" and got a good laugh. Your reputation preceeded you in Regina, apparently.
