The first group to rehearse was the Blue group. The Blue group consists of performers whose ceremony costumes includes the colour blue. Their routine is very fast. I don't envy them except for the song they dance to is awesome!
Following this we had a short break and then a photo shoot. Andrew, professional photographer and cast member, wanted to take some quirky photos of us posing with our favourite London 2012 memorabilia and some group shots.
After the photo shoot we rehearsed all of our routines, did some flocking, practiced the final scene and video chatted to Colin, Legacy 2012 project manager and cast member, who was on holiday in Poland. To say we were exhausted after all of that is an understatement! But in true volunteer style many of us were performing that night at Toynbee Hall so they day was not over yet (photo below)!
