KNT's Day of Dance: Rachael's Musical Theatre Class
Standard YouTube Licence
I described KNT's Day of Dance last Saturday in Vampires (19 Aug 2018). While I was trying to dance like a vampire in Karen Sant's class Rachael Crocker was teaching this routine to our colleagues in the musical theatre class. After we had performed our piece they invited us next door to watch them.
I described them as "very good indeed. Very slick, very polished and you could tell from the smiles on their faces that they were having a whale of a time." You can see for yourself what I meant,
I am so fortunate still to be dancing with the graceful, athletic and generous students of KNT. They welcome me as one of my own even though I am decades older, so much slower and far more ponderous than they are. I am very well aware of my limitations as a dancer and am reminded of them whenever I see myself on film, especially when I get in the way of what would otherwise have been a much more polished performance. Usually that does not matter but recently it very nearly did.
That brings me to two announcements to those who have put their names down for Powerhouse Ballet's audition on 15 Sept. As promised I have spoken to Mark Hindle about extra coaching for the audition on 15 Sept and he has suggested a mock audition for those who want it in the Dancehouse on one of the Saturdays before the audition. I will find out about availability of studio space with the Dancehouse on Tuesday but in the meantime it would be useful to know who intends to turn up for this session with Mark either on 1 or 8 Sept by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The other announcement is that I have arranged for the chef whom Jay Rayner described as "Britain's best home cook" and "the greatest Indian chef in Britain" to prepare a healthy but tasty energy giving lunch for those who show up at Dance Studio Leeds on 16 Sept 2018 to work with Terry Etheridge.
