Ok, so if your anything like me, you hear the word 'spectrum' and immediately I'm singing, (badly in my case!) Florence + the Machine, dancing around the office like a complete goon demonstrating moves my dad would showcase at a wedding party. Its wild the effect music can have on us, there's certain tunes, love or hate, that can spark something inside us like; emotion, debate or sometimes a physical response. In this scenario our physical response is to dance!
So you see a poster, for a dance workshop, over the Summer Holidays, what do you do? Ignore it? Now we all know just how amazing the Summer holidays can be, chilling out with friends, going into town, no school, the freedom you get feels amazing, major lie ins, late night film watching, however lets not forget those days you spend, perhaps when the weather isn't to great or when your mate is away on holiday and your trawling facebook, updating your status for the 5th time that day. Sometimes when you've got to much time on your hands, you just don't know what to do with it. So would you want to come and dance instead......hmmmm?? So lets break it down...
What goes on at a dance workshop? Well without stating the obvious, dancing. OK, so maybe I did state the obvious, but really the word dance can be so intangible and mean so many things to different people, I mean what was your first thought when dance was mentioned, ballet? Leg warmers and sweat bands? Diversity? We all have stereotypes and first impressions affect how we see things, and would perhaps make us not want to do something, when really we probably would've enjoyed it, I wonder if thats the case here, fear of the unknown? I'm not being funny but in a studio full of mirrors think about all the selfie potential! #studioselfie .....see i'm already obsessed....
Less talking/ typing then, more dancing!! Let me show you a sneak peek of what you can expect if you did, see a poster for a dance workshop and decided to be brave and do it!
So you've seen the type of thing you can expect, good music and moves in an amazing studio, and I promise it will be a lot of fun dancing, laughing and having a good time. Learning some great choreography and developing your dance skills! Youth Dance: Spectrum is for over 11's and will run on the 5th and 6th of August from 11am til 4pm on both days! Spectrum will be led by Iain Payne and myself, Jemma Louise, we so look forward to dancing with you! Don't miss out guys, its gonna be good!!
