To celebrate the upcoming DanceLAB Emerging Choreographers performance entitled "an·am·ne·sis", we asked performing artists Maggie Seer, Zach Schorch and the rest of their cast to recall their most embarrassing memory. YIKES! This is what Maggie had to say:

"One of my most embarrassing memories, and coincidentally one of my earliest memories is from kindergarten. We had one bathroom in the classroom and there were many students in line to use it. After waiting in line for what seemed like 30 minutes, I couldn't hold it any longer and peed on the floor. I was mortified so I walked around this little bookcase that was along our bathroom line and stood behind it to wait for my turn. A minute later, our parent helper asked if something had spilled on the floor. Of course I didn't say anything, I was mortified. I finally got in the bathroom and had to take off my matching cheetah skort and top, and my tights - they were soaked. I knew I couldn't put the tights back on, so I stuffed them in my coat pocket for the rest of the day."
