Cloggin' At The Con
Making rhythmic noises with your feet on the floor to music....
Cloggin' For A Play At Oldham Coliseum
This is a great opportunity to tread the boards again. It's what's known as a rehearsal reading. It's a play by a prolific and celebrated writer, Carole Solazzo. We'll be doing an energetic dance with Oakenyouth, then a Pat Tracey's A routine.
This is like a prototype play, and if it's received well will be commissioned as a proper run. So, it's important we give it our best for the sake of all the people involved in the pitch...

Yule: Winter Solstice
Save the date. There is no plan as yet but something will happen. So, in lieu of any information whatsoever, please find some Ned Stark quotes to keep us going:
"Winter is coming."
"The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword."
"I don't fight in tournaments because when I fight a man for real I don't want him to know what I can do."
"You grew up with actors. You learned their craft and you learnt it well. But I grew up with soldiers. I learned to die a long time ago."
"There's great honour in serving the Night's Watch. The Starks have manned the Wall for thousands of years and you are a Stark. You may not have my name but you have my blood."
Demon Barbers Pre Show
Organised thanks to Margaret from Rossendale. We are providing pre-show entertainment, along with other dance sides at the Met.
Discounted tickets are available to watch the show afterwards so we need to agree numbers and pre-book that bit.
ELR Dance Out
Times and arrangements to be confirmed - these are based on last year :)
A blinking brilliant dance out, this one - a day of dancing at the stations on the East Lancs Railways, travelling on their lovely chuffas and then a performance in Bury followed by a session in the trackside pub.
