All Pepped Up

Another entry for Pilates class though it has absolutely no relation to the exercise whatsoever.

So no, this isn’t the fanfic update that I’ve been talking about for so long. I hope nobody tortures me for this.

Just this Monday, we attended our university pep rally to show our support to the various varsity teams for the upcoming season. It was an event in which we could rally together and cheer on the athletes, and see them perform amazing numbers onstage for us. Because the students were talented like that. The event started sometime after 3PM, and lasted somewhere around an hour and a half to two hours. And let me tell you: The ticket was well worth it.

Held at the University Film Center, the lighting and other effects were superb as expected. There were times when the audio failed, possibly due to the overexcited athletes tripping over the wires (which, if you think about it, is rather ironic considering how graceful and skilled they move in their respective fields) as they scurried from one end of the stage to another without trying to be seen.

I’ll be completely honest and say that I didn’t really expect the quality of performances this year; having seen last year’s pep rally — which consisted mostly of line dances and other similar mass performances that looked almost impromptu I’m so mean — I was expecting something along those lines. Also, taking into account the limited time they were able to practice (classes started on the thirteenth of June), I can’t help but be surprised at how well their performances went.

Scratch that. My jaw was hanging open by the time the Fencing Team was done with their performance.

I think you would too, if a whole team of lean yet muscled fencers complete with hot girls was in front of you and you started seeing a band of black showing above a steadily lowering  pure white garter line.

The other performances were amazing too. UP Street, which is said to be competing in a worldwide street dance competition sometime this year, was downright amazing. The movements were executed cleanly and precisely, blending well with the mix of music used. Together with the lights and the fog, the whole pep rally was really a sight to behold and a wonder to listen to.

And damn, I just realized how much I really miss dancing.
