Just before the snow hit our men's chorus had a Sunday afternoon rehearsal to learn, master and conquer the number "Dancing Fools". Here is Ian's version of events -
The men’s chorus gathered on Sunday afternoon, shuffling in to the dance rehearsal room looking at their feet and trying to mentally will the two appendages to work in unison!
The choreographer explained what a great dance number ‘Dancing Fool’ is and how the title is not an instruction. Starting off slow, we began putting a series of steps together, all of us were beginning to feel more confident until the music was played at normal speed and then it was mayhem.
But we persevered, had a cup of tea, persevered some more and slowly the sequences came together and we thought we had cracked it. Then the lyrics were added to our single task brains and the steps went AWOL.
The choreographer left for home but the men stayed on determined to master the dancing & singing and eventually hey presto, it clicked, we’re eleven dancing ‘non fools’!
