A Distinction for Dance


BTEC NATIONAL DIPLOMA IN PERFORMING ARTS DECEMBER 1988

Tutorials and next term’s preparation projects.

 

‘When the World Begins to Look Her Age’ – Alan Rankine



 

Donna Davidson and I performed Beauty and the Beast for the group today, and I feel it went quite well – despite Donna forgetting the last few moves.  But it’s all part of the experience and perhaps we should have spent more time on it than we actually did.  It went down well with the rest of the group, though, and Scarlett Kane was clearly very impressed because she awarded us both a DISTINCTION.

 

Scarlett later confessed that when I hadn’t attended several Dance lessons (due to Macbeth + Panto commitments) she felt that I probably wouldn’t be able to ‘move one foot in front of another’.  Fortunately, I’m currently learning things very quickly.  She said she was extremely impressed.

 

Perhaps the dance that most impressed me from other group members was a piece called CONFLICT (to some War Of The Worlds music) by Kat Hill and Jonny Badcock.  They work + play well together.

 

Jonny Badcock is figuring quite heavily in my mind for the lead role in THE CHINESE PLAY.  I think as well as being good fun, the trip to Cirencester might prove to be a useful exercise, especially as the play is about Flash.

 

I avoided Justine again, until she finally tracked me down and gave me 30 seconds of verbal grief.

 

And that was that.

 

Tonight, Betty rang Dad about maintenance and they were both a bit soddy, but it’s all sorted out now.
