I have split these La Bayadere #STAGEDOORDIARIES episodes into two parts as I was dancing different roles in the first 3 performances to the last 3, so be sure to watch Part 1 if you haven't already!

In this performance I was dancing the Haremsdamen Demi-Soloists with Madi in Act 1 and Kingdom of the Shades and Flower Girls in Act 2! The Haremsdamen dance, I danced in the corps in Romanian National Ballet so it was nice to return to it doing the demi's! It's a super sassy, quite sexy dance for the girls to do and was so much fun!
Rodrigo Pinto is dancing the Golden Idol which is quite a famous role for male dancers which he danced flawlessly. And yes, his entire body is spray painted gold! Rodi's only clothing is a jock-strap (this is what male dancers wear to keep their male parts in order)! A very risquay look which he carries off rather well I think you'll agree.
A little post performance ritual of mine is to have a little sing-a-long on my way home. In the warmer months I ride my bike to and from work, and after a performance as it's usually quite late therefore nobody on the roads, I like to crank up my Bluetooth speaker and have a good sing. I find it very therapeutic and usually a good wind down, my recent favourite is the newer Beauty and the Beast soundtrack! Living my best life pretending I'm Emma Watson!
