Later came 2 hours of sword work, which though also mentally/physically challenging, was quite exciting! Clashing steel is really cool! My day ended with a couple hours of u/s Cruella choreography, though this time much easier since Cruella’s part in this number is mostly blocking. Thank goodness!
Tomorrow comes yet another exciting new experience – my first flying lesson for Mary Poppins!!!
