Apologies for this post been a few weeks late, I’m playing catch up with my posts at the moment.
This week I haven’t been very well, I think I may have had the dreaded Dengue fever so it has been tough for me to try and relax to get better but also work with the girls to prepare them for the performances we have coming up – One this Saturday 9th Feb and the other next Saturday 16th, so there’s lots of work to do.
This Saturday six of the girls performed in the main square for International Women’s day. The girls have rehearsed and practiced very hard all week, even coming to the Pink House in the evening to have more time to rehearse together. They have being very motivated and focused and set a great example to the rest of the girls who will be performing next week. Due to been ill I haven’t been around as much as I’d have liked, but the girls have made me really proud in not letting this effect them.
Saturday morning came and thank God I was feeling a lot better than the beginning of the week. At 7.30am I made my way to the Pink House, I arrived to find many of the girls already there rehearsing and getting themselves ready for the event. It’s was great to see the girls who weren’t performing had come along to represent the Pink House and show their support.
The uniforms for the Pink House had arrived earlier in the week but the day of the performance was the first time the girls got to wear them, they were all very excited about this and beamed with pride as they wore them whilst looking very smart.
As we walked into the town square it was as if the Pink House had come to take over the town, due to the swarm of girls all in Pink tops.
The 6 girls performing were supported and encouraged by the rest of the girls from the Pink House and staff, many of the girls danced on the side lines as we clapped and cheered. It was wonderful to see such a sense of unity among the girls with non of them being jealous of one another, it was a very proud moment for all of us.
This performance has left all the girls very excited for the event next week and has left me feeling very proud of their hard work and what they’ve achieved in such a short space of time! It’s amazing to see their confidence improving and the girls becoming generally happier within themselves.
Exciting times ahead next week as we hold our very own event in the main square of Medina; ‘A night of dreams realized’ with performances from our girls in poetry, dance and theatre. Be sure to check out my next post for all the info and pics.
As always thank you for visiting my blog and showing your support, it is really appreciated!
