A fitting stage for Worcestershire's boys?...

Me, Rose from DanceFest and the teachers from the Worcestershire schools taking part in Boys Dancing had a very productive meeting on Monday evening, ironing out all the logistics. So we are good to start the project now - our first session will be on the 3rd February.

I can proudly announce that we have a performance date of the 5th April in the evening, we do not have a confirmed venue as yet but we are very close to it! The teachers, Rose and I all decided that the show that we would like to present in Worcestershire will be an event that links to the nation's First World War Centenary commemorations.

At present we are looking into the possibility of using College Hall as our venue; which is part of King's College and one of Worcester Cathedral's buildings. It has lots of really interesting historical links to battles through the years and also has memorials to students from King's College who died in the war on its walls . We would like the piece to bring to life these elements of the site that relate to the war and also explore the building's breathtaking architecture. It looks like an awesome site for a performance. Hopefully next week I'll be able to explore if for myself as I take a walk around the site.
