Virginia day 8 - 23rd Apr 2018

Virginia day 8 Today was a real taste of what we’ve all actually travelled here to do. An early rise this morning (brightened by some goodie bags from Duffy and Nina) meant we were straight into rehearsals by 9am, overlooked by the Bulldog mural in the Norfolk Academy school gym. We spent a couple of hours in this massive gym spacing our 2 main tattoo items and polishing the multitude of lines and formations involved in these dances. We were then joined by the pipes and drums which will be joining us on stage for our items. We all really enjoyed dancing to live music despite how loud it was!
Our morning rehearsal was wrapped up by a tasty chicken salad lunch topped off with some amazing fresh strawberries for dessert! Left with a couple of free hours, we jumped into the vans and headed for the outlet malls. The fact that we could barely fit all the shopping into the vans after a mere 1 and a half hours shopping proved that this team really knows how to shop!!
Our Sunday afternoon was spent at the Scope arena - a massive domed arena where will be performing most days from now on. We had an evening of rehearsals under the lights broken up by a dinner break. We left the arena tonight excited about our upcoming performances knowing that they are coming together really well (a couple of sneak peak photos below).
