Face the Music and Dance at the Crescent


Byline: Grace Notes by Andrea Rea

Have you ever gone to a wedding in a bad mood, not enjoyed the meal and dreaded the band and/or disco after but ended up having a brilliant night one you got moving on the dance floor? If so, you'll understand the thinking behind the Crescent Arts Centre's City Dance 06 event this Saturday.

There are classes relating to musical theatre, physical theatre and pop video style dance as well as traditional folk dance, tap and ballet. In short, something for everyone. I ask you, who isn't secretly interested in finding out whether there's a hidden Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers (delete as appropriate) inside them? …
