During the week, we had several different rehearsal sessions, Wednesday evening, Thursday afternoon, and ALL day on Friday and Saturday. The best part was learning the openning number dance which was to "Strut" by The Cheetah Girls. We had lots of time to practice the fitness wear walking pattern and the evening gown walking pattern. Husbands even got to "enjoy" rehearsals on Friday afternoon as they had to practice how to escourt us on stage for evening gown. Paul was a natural! I thank him so much for being so supportive of me!
In the theater lobby Thursday before rehearsals began. Sandra, Eileen, Theresa, and Brooklyn are sweethearts!
Rehearsals on Friday had many visitors including the young Illinois queens pictured above.
