On-site at Tampines Round Market and Food Center (TRMFC)

IMG_7057a was not present during this rehearsal as she had an interview with Susan Ng on 93.8 FM. The photographer and videographer also attended the rehearsal to better understand and plan out how they would best record down the performances. Additionally, 3 guests from NAC came down to witness the rehearsal and the full run.

Preparing for the final rehearsal before the tech run and performances.

Haizad first gathered the dancers to clarify the ending, about them taking off the costumes. He also wanted to clarify and try out the transition from Segment 1 to Segment 2, how the percussionists will “call” the dancers. From there, he wanted to try out Segment 2, for the dancers to be more enthusiastic and energetic during the lucky draw segment, leading into Ji Ba Ban and finally the percussionist “battle” which will then flow into Segment 3.

Firming down details of the performance.

After clarifying the various details in the performance, the dancers practiced the choreography for Ji Ba Ban while waiting for the NAC guests to arrive. Once everyone was ready, the dancers prepared themselves at the holding area (Haizad calls it “Avengers”) and the full dress rehearsal was conducted.
