If you've been watching ASAP Natin ‘To under the “new normal,” you would notice how the setting in the studio has changed, and how the production and performances itself have adjusted due to the required precautionary guidelines that need to be followed. But in this vlog of the Dance Royalty Maja Salvador, you can see how her adjustments have been especially at the backstage - how she’s been observing the safety protocols while performing all out on stage.
At the start of her vlog, you can see Maja lining up for her swab test at 10:16 in the morning before entering the studio. She was wearing complete safety gear including her facemask and face shield. Social distancing was also observed in the testing area. You could see how Maja wanted so badly to hug her friends especially some members of the G-force but they still observed social distancing and just greeted each other and had a small talk while meters apart.
On August 14, three days after the swab testing, they had a mentoring via Zoom as they practiced their dance performances. The day after that, they had the studio rehearsal at ABS-CBN. At 1:30pm Maja arrived at the studio with her facemask and face shield again. Upon arriving at the studio, Maja saw her friends and colleagues including Gary Valenciano, Jona Viray, and Kim Chiu. At 2:53pm they started their rehearsals for her dance number with Kim. And then after one hour, they had their stage rehearsals.
They would perfect their moves for their acclaimed and trending dance performance that left the
audience in awe. It was actually a 9-minute dance number and during the rehearsals, Kim and Maja performed almost flawlessly.
Watch the rest of the video to witness how they came up with such an exceptional production number under the new normal!
