Observing the technique class and the rehearsal gave me so much insight on how much work is put into each individual dance. It made me realize that dancers are perfectionists and will persistently go over one small part of a dance until it is absolutely perfect. Observing the technique class and rehearsal allowed me to see the dedication…
