The girls met at Kings House Sports Ground in Chiswick on Sunday 19.6.16 along with over 600 other people to rehearse for The Big Dance that will be performed on 2.7.16 in Trafalgar Square. It was a great day, very hot in the morning and breezy in the afternoon. The rehearsal was led by Jen and Jose and watched by choreographer Akram Khan. Akram Khan spoke very emotionally about losing 2 friends in the Orlando attack and wanted to show the world through the Big Dance, that the human spirit could not be quashed. This was received with cheers and loud applause. It was very inspiring. All the performers came together and worked very hard. All ages and abilities from 14 – 70+ years. There was a disabled group, professional dancers and everything in between.
We are now looking forward to going to Trafalgar Square for a rehearsal on 1.7.16 and then the performances on 2.7.16.
