Bollywood classes at Weymouth College are now in week 5. Some of us were brave enough to join Bishan and his "proper" dancers at Hope Square on Monday May 26th for a one off performance. It just proved a point that no matter what steps you (or I) forget, so long as you enjoy yourself, the audience will too. There is still time to come along and join in, Bishan is about to start to teach us a "walking dance" , I know, I am confused as to what this is as well, but I am absolutely convinced, that no matter what, we will be enjoying the slower pace that the working title seems to insinuate. (Its a completely new skill to me, I never realised my body could move in that way! but I am having fun, Bishan is a lovely intelligent tutor who notices when anyone is having a few difficulties and takes his time to help us understand what we need to be doing.... roll on the carnival....... gulp! If you need further information on this or indeed the new Brazilian Dance/ Carnival workshop then please contact Julie Hursthouse Community Development Officer on 01305 838497 or 07980 730029, (be advised you do not need to be a size zero or prance around in the smallest bikini possible to take part, see Julies new costume, (still to be completed)
