As a member of ‘The Move’, Blaenau Gwent Youth Dance Company, I am currently very busy preparing for the piece ‘Deeper’ that will be showcased Saturday in the annual Winter Dance Faktry Festival.
Myself and all other members of The Move have recently been undergoing consistent rehearsal periods in preparation for Saturday’s showcase, involving a fair amount of hard work, commitment, focus, effort and amendments.
This time of year is exceptionally busy but exciting for members of The Move, as each member is involved in other community youth dance classes and projects across the borough, including ‘New Ground’ community dance project, ‘Leapers’ community dance class and ‘ADYC’ Abertillery Youth Dance Company, Some of whom are also performing in the Winter Dance Faktry Festival.
This week rehearsal periods and preparation time has been increased, with the intention of creating an intensive rehearsal regime generating positive effect, a lot to rehearse with little time to do it. Although this could have the potential to be strenuous it is beneficial in every way and a vital way of improving our performance skills as young dancers, encouraging us to always strive for better, even if we believe that we are currently doing our best. It would be great if you can come and support our work at the Festival.
