Dear Ida (see the photo below)
I mentioned some time back that our vey own Gigi was teaching some actors to dance for a play called Dear Ida. The play is about the role of dance halls during WWII and the healing that dance offered. Sessions start on April 5. You can secure your tickets here - https://lamama.com.au/whats-on/la-mama-courthouse-summer-2022/dear-ida/. Check it out.
Classes this week:
Just a reminder that they are coming.
Alexander technique for better dance
I hope you saw Anita’s interview with the Alexander teacher Jenny Thirtle. If not, then take a look here - https://fb.watch/bS52-LFr3P/. The Alexander technique is something I have used myself to improve the way I move and feel. It is, in my experience, an amazing system for better wellness. When you watch the video, you will see how enlightening it was for Anita. Also, the opportunity of a group session for us all was raised. Please get back to me if you would be interested in that, and we can organize something. Or you can try it out for yourself one-on-one. Look up Jenny here - https://alexandertechmelb.com.
There are two socials this week. The first is the disco party this Saturday (www.facebook.com/events/560675171764075). To prepare for that, we will have a disco theme for the Latin Ameircan and Lindy Hop and R’n’R lessons. Make sure you are free on Saturday night for this. And then on Sunday it’s Wired (www.facebook.com/events/7633986299960716). A great way to see the weekend out (with some social dancing) – so make yourself free for that too.
That was a full update – see you on the dance floor
