|Company Class 29 February 2020|
© 2020 Powerhouse Ballet
A photo of our last company class in a studio. It was held on 29 Feb 2020 in Studio 2 at The Dancehouse and Jane Tucker of Northern Ballet was our guest ballet mistress. I am particularly fond of that studio because it was there that Jane taught us Swan Lake, La Bayadere, Coppelia, Romeo and Juliet and The Nutcracker in KNT's wonderful choreographic workshops. It is also where my pre-intermediate class with Karen used to meet.
Jane gave us our first company class in Huddersfield two years ago. Last year she gave us a great anniversary class at Yorkshire Dance with David Plumpton at the piano. I had booked Jane, David and the same studio on 30 of this month for another anniversary class.
I have no idea when we shall be allowed to reassemble in a studio but from what the PM was saying last night it is unlikely to be any time soon. Also, as I am in the most vulnerable age group I have to face the possibility that I may never take a conventional class again.
But we can still do online classes. To make up for the classes that we missed in March and April I have booked Charlotte Ingleson at 14:00 tomorrow and Jane Tucker at 11:00 on 16 May to train us online. Jane will still deliver our anniversary class at 11:00 on 30 May which I shall make as special as I possibly can.
On the first Saturday after dance studios reopen, Jane and David have agreed to give you the class of your lives even if I cannot join you in person because of continuing social distancing for my age group.
So make the following notes in your diaries:
2 May 2020 14:00 Charlotte Ingleson Online Company Class
16 May 2020 11:00 Jane Tucker Online Company Class
30 May 2020 11:00 Jane Tucker Anniversary Company Class
