Dance Show at Panama's National Theatre

Tuesday November 27, 2012

Today I had such a fun night! But first, lets talk about my new obsession: this leather skirt! I bought it at Forever 21 during our trip to Orlando, and I've been wanting to pair it with just about anything ever since ;)

{Shirt: Conway (Panama) (Similar here!)  ;  Skirt: Forever21 (Similar here!) ;  Shoes: BMB (Panama) (old) (Similar here!)  ;  Star clutch: Modcloth.com (Similar here!)  ;  Belt: Used to be my sisters (Similar here!)}

 
Ok, now on to the big plans of the night! Today I went to a Dance Show to see my sister act and dance as one of the main characters of the show. How cool is that!?!

The show took place at Panama's National Theater down in Casco Viejo (a historic area of Panama). I absolutely LOVE that theater because everything is decorated so glamorously.

The show brought back lots of good memories from the time I use to dance myself. For those of you who don't know, I danced ballet, jazz, tap, and modern for 9 years when I was younger. Out of all the dance types, I particularly loved tap (and I was pretty good at it too!). 

Here are a couple of photos of tonight's show:

Seeing all of these dances made me want to dance again as well. But the truth is that I don't really have the time (or energy) for dancing anymore. Or maybe I do? We will see, I'm still thinking about it ;)

Aaaaaanyway, the best part of the show was definitely my sister's performance!! She acted and danced as an old grandmother, which was one of the two main characters of the entire show. 

My sister played her role so well and kept the audience entertained and laughing. She added a delightful comic relief to the entire show.

Congrats Annie, you were fantastic!

    I didn't know you were a dancer- I have no dancing skills haha. Adore your skirt- it doesn't look like it came from Forever21! Great find. :)

  7. Oh my, that's one ornate theatre--it's so very pretty indeed! I'm glad that you were a) able to wear your super cute new skirt and b) see your sister perform... how exciting! I bet it was a lovely time, a lovely time indeed! haha, I love how in that last picture you're taller than your dad (I'm assuming that's your dad, haha!)--must be the heels. ;)

    Those pictures of the play are fantastic! You captured it wonderfully. :D

  11. Love your outfit, Marie. That little silver star bag is so incredibly cute!

    Wow, what an amazing theatre, I love buildings like that! It's already a pleasure to just be inside one of them! It looks like a great show, lots of lovely outfits. Your sister looks great, you must be so proud! Does she do the acting/dancing for fun or is it really her job? It's great you also danced for such a long time; you should definitely start doing it again if you can find the time! :)

  12. It must have been really cool to see your sister dance on that grand stage!  I love that skirt and cannot wait to see all the ways you are going to style it!

  13. I love how you are so supportive of your sister!  You used to be a dancer?  For some reason that does not surprise me, I think you should find time for it again.  Every time I see an amazing performance I wish I would have been a dancer.  It always looks like so much fun:)  I started taking some swing dance lesson recently just to try it out - I'm not very good, but it is still fun ;)

  23.  Hello Daria!! I'm so so glad to hear you like my blog and my photos, thank you!

    In terms of the photos, I would recommend taking most of your photos with natural light if possible (meaning, light from the sun rather than from a light bulb). That makes editing the photos much easier. I use Adobe Photoshop to edit my photos.

    Does this answer your question? If not please let me know and thanks again for your kind words!

  24.  Thank you Jody!!! I was indeed, SO proud of my sister! She has always been good at acting, but is just now starting to actually try to be in plays and such. She works full time as a manager, but likes to act in her free time.

    I am still considering the dancing thing, if I decided to try it again I will definitely take pictures to let you all know!

  25.  Thank you!!!! It was sooo cool to see her on the stage again, I was definitely very proud to be her sister. Thanks for your kind words!

  26.  Thank you Annabelle!!! Hahaha funny you say that me being a dancer doesn't surprise you. I used to REALLY enjoy it, so perhaps I will try it again. Lets wait and see what 2013 has to offer! Swing dance lessons sounds like so much fun, kudos for trying it out!

  28. First off I love that leather skirt! SO hip and I have definitely looked at a few at Forever 21 myself. It's so great that you were able to watch your sister perform! That theater looks amazing and the show looks like it was a lot of fun, I loved looking at all the costumes and your sister as an old lady haha. I've done some dance in shows I've been in and it is a lot of fun! Maybe you could get back into a class that meets like once a week or something! I'm sure you're dying to get back into it after dancing for so long! Hope you're having great week Marie!

I'm thinking about asking my sister to take a class with me just so its funner, we will see what she says. You've done some dance in shows? That's awesome!! Hope you are having a great week too ;)
