This past weekend we had our first Living Legends tour of the season! We had a 3 day mini-tour to the four corners area. Our first stop was Blanding,UT.
We all met up at the RB on campus bright and early at 6am for a five-hour bus drive to Blanding. We performed at CEU for a small outreach program. So funny story, Janielle, our artistic director, had everyone in the native section introduce their tribe. Shelly, Sam, and I aren't native so we kind of shied away from the question BUT, someone in the audience specifically asked us to tell our ethnic backgrounds.
Our first performance was awesome and I loved being able to talk to the audience after our show to hear what they thought. I came out dressed in Jalisco for finale even though I don't dance it (yet!) but one of my favorite things to do is have the kids feel how heavy the dress is! That sucker weighs a ton.
Blanding you were so great, thanks a ton for having us!
