On Saturday 18 Aug 2018 KNT Danceworks will offer its adult dance students a special whole day of dance with guest teachers. One of the highlights will be a chance to learn a completely new ballet which that Karen Sant will create to music composed by our good friend and classmate David Hotchkiss, There will also be classes on technique for beginners and pre-intermediates and intermediate and advanced students in jazz, contemporary and ballet. The classes will take place at the Dancehouse on 10 Oxford Road. That is close to Oxford Road station and literally round the corner from Chester St multistory car park. The basic cost of each class with be £15 but there will be discounts for multiple bookings. So a full afternoon's dance costs £26 which I think is pretty reasonable.

I have decided to launch "Terpsichore North West" to focus on artists and events in dance or music in North-West England that I might not be able to cover in "Terpsichore". Earlier in the year I featured the young English composer David Hotchkiss whom I met when he lived in Manchester. David has given permission for some of his work to be choreographed and we hope to have a chance to learn it in a special day of dance.

The next company class will take place at Dance Studio Leeds on 28 July between 14:00 and 15:30. The class will be given by Annemarie Donoghue of Northern Ballet Academy who has taught me since 2013. Like other Northern Ballet teachers, Annemarie teaches in accordance with the Ichino method and although she has endless patience and great good humour she expects the best from each dancer and invariably gets it. Expect a challenging class but a very enjoyable one.

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to see "Emotion Pictures", a work created by Jenny Murphy and Fiona Potts for members of Birmingham LCBT. The pirce was inspired by movies that had impressed those participating in the project. The performers had been trained in just 12 weeks by instructors from Birmingham Royal Ballet. For many it was their first time in public yet they performed with great poise and verve. Some managed some very tricky jumps and turns. After the show I got a chance to meet some of them at a reception for the audience and later at the cast party at a nearby bar, Not a bad way to spend quarter finals match day.

If you live in or are passing through London on 9 July 2018 you may want to drop into the Civil Service Club at 19:30 to hear Gerald Dowler interview Chase Johnsey.

Johnsey has been in the news quite a lot lately for dancing a female character role in English National Ballet's receont production of "The Sleeping Beauty" and parting comapny with Les Ballets Troackadero de Monte Carlo for which he performed for many years, However the most interesting news for me was his winning the Dancing Times male dancer of 2016 which was an interesting decision for all the reasons I explain in this article.

The Civil Service Club is next door to the Nigerian embassy at the corner of Great Scotland Yard and Northumberland Avenue. The nearest tubes are Embankment and Charing Cross. If you attend the talk you should have a very interesting evening,
