I hope itíll inspire other community choir leaders and voice teachers from the NVPN www.naturalvoice.net to invite DUP teachers. Ralph Nimmann, Cambridge
On Sunday 4th March Ralph and his wife, Vitalija, led a wonderful day of dances from all over the world with chants and singing; it was a great success. Many of the people at the workshop were from a singing background, but we did have some circle dancers there too. Ralph said what we needed to do was to concentrate on our feet! Remembering the words, tunes and movements can all seem too much, but concentrating on your feet meant you were grounded: everything else would follow.
The day started at 10.30am, with a break at 12.30pm for an hour of shared lunch, then more dances until 3.30pm. We did thirteen dances throughout the day which was well paced. Here is a good quote that I think summed up the day:
One final memory from the day: a childrenís party was going on at the Community Centre at the same time as the workshop. As their party finished and the children were being taken home, I glanced through the glass doors and saw 10 children completely transfixed by the sight of adults singing and dancing and having fun. Maybe the next step is a family dance day?
Thanks again to Ralph and Vitalija for a wonderful day!
