|The Dear Old Dancehouse|
One of the highlights of my year is KNT's Day of Dance. It offers a chance to train with some of the best teachers and performers in the business. Last year, for example, I took classes with Alex Hallas of Bale Cymru and Jane Tucker of Northern Ballet Academy.
Another Day of Dance will take place tomorrow and I regret to say that I only learned of it a few minutes ago when I tried to check in your some online classes for the coming week. According to KNT's Class Manager app, the following are available:
- 11:00 - 12:30 Beginner/Pre-Intermediate Ballet
- 11:00 - 12:30 Intermediate/Advanced Contemporary
- 13:00 - 14:30 Intermediate/Advanced Ballet
- 13:00 - 14:30 Pre-Intermediate Contemporary
- 19:00 - 20:30 Beginner/Pre-Intermediate Ballet
- 19:00 - 20:30 Beginner/Pre-Intermediate Contemporary
- 20:30 - 22:00 Intermediate/Advanced Ballet
- 20:30 - 22:00 Intermediate/Advanced Contemporary
Sadly it won't be quite the same as last year because we are exiled from the Dear Old Dancehouse as a result of the public health emergency but we shall still have excellent teaching. Above all, we can still wave at each other over Zoom even if we can no longer embrace.
Plagues don't last forever. There is every chance that medicine will eradicate or at least contain this virus as it has done with so many other infections. One day this horrible scourge will be nothing more than a horrible memory. I wish everyone a great weekend.
