I'm currently stage managing my first dance showcase: VelocityDC.  It's a collaboration of several dance companies in the DC area representing a variety of different dance styles.  The companies developed the pieces independently and will be presented gala style.  We started tech yesterday and performances start tonight.  It's been a very interesting experience so far and the pieces I saw yesterday are quite beautiful.  Tickets are only $18, so if you're in the DC area it's definitely worth checking out.

I've had a pretty awesome experience.  I feel like I learned a lot and I got to see some really beautiful performances. 

And tonight the producer of the festival serenaded me during one of his speeches, after which the audience turned back to the booth and applauded.  It was kind of amazing; I've never had anything quite like that happen before.  In a sometimes thankless job it's always nice to know you're appreciated :-)
