When I did the Concours d'entree to enter the company two years ago, I learnt how to handle my stress and nervousness the day before. I used the same techniques this time and I succeed to have some deep sleep the night before. The Concours started very early for the Quadrilles (Corps de ballet dancers), at 10 am. This means that we have to do the make up and hair-styling at 7h30, the warm up class started at 8h30 and we were on stage at 10am.
Actually it went quite well for me, I was satisfied. We only had 30 minutes before receiving the results by email. Didn't want to react in front of the others, I decided to do some stretching alone in a small studio, door closed. I then played a bit of piano, with my phone next to the piano sheet. Of course, I was disappointed, it has been tough to digest the news.
