Opera and Dance Workshop | 24th July 2012


Last Tuesday we has a very contrasting double session - Dave led us to see the conclusion of the opera CARMEN -we learnt a lot about the unpredictability of operatic stories - whic always makes for good drama! Unfortunately most of us don't have within our vocal chords those contralto and tenor voices to act it out of stage...if only!

In our second half, we learnt to improvise dance sequences to that well-known hymn Shine Jesus Shine...the words and tune might be familiar, but try acting it our with foot, arm and body movements…no mean feat! Sue ably led us in this session, ably assisted by Elisa, well-versed in ballet movements as a professional, and a most enlightening and liberating time was had by all. We are looking forward to our next Dance session!
