One Last Chance to Shine
Last month I danced in Northern Ballet Academy's end of year show (see My Second Ballet 5 July 2015). This is likely to be our class's last show because the new timetable does not allow time for rehearsals. But we shall have one last chance to dance at Morley Town Hall on Saturday, 26 Sept 2015. We are dancing in A Feast of Music and Dance by Older Performers which will take place between 11:30 and 13:30. We are appearing with West Yorkshire Playhouse Heydays and the Australian performance group The Golds.
Our show is part of a 2-year programme known as Time to Shine which is delivered by Yorkshire Dance and the Leeds Education Arts Forum (City Varieties, Leeds Grand Theatre, Northern Ballet, Opera North and Yorkshire Dance) to improve the lives of older people in Leeds. Our show is free but tickets must be booked in advance. Call 0113 243 8765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As this may well be my last performance anywhere I am hoping for a flower throw as is customary for retiring dancers at Covent Garden. "Happen" as we say in these parts.
