KFA Moves North East Region Newsletter - Summer 2014


  • 1 The Mover North East Region Expression Through Dance We not only love to dance, and live to dance, but KFA Moves is all about expressing thoughts, feelings and ideas through dynamic movement. Once again, our North East Regional Showcase Festival was a rich cornucopia of rhythmic leitmotifs: lyrical, jazzy, funky, thought- provoking and joyful but always a happy get-together.

  • 2 The Dolphin Centre, Darlington Saturday 17th May 2014 Review We have had some really positive comments on the whole show that it was varied and slick. The variety of items was very good including branch, NE, National Festival and solo/duet and Youth Moves performances. Guests from National have given us some brilliant feedback. The Mayor and Mayoress of Darlington also thought it was wonderful, and they were asking pertinent questions, saying we had a good, social community. They stayed for the whole performance, and lingered afterwards. The video-recording guys also thought it was fabulous. We managed to bring in some new people to our audience who had never seen it before, and comments from one gentleman regarding the fact that it was great to see older people dancing. Pierremont School were excellent and filled the floor with their large number of performers and also our audience with their supporters.

Holly and Rowanne performed their fabulous championship duo and the audience absolutely loved it! Thank you girls.

Our music was Holiday Suite and we tried to incorporate various scenarios about going on holiday - waiting in queues, meeting new friends, chilling out, watching the waves, hustle and bustle and finally coming home." Jackie Oliver Linda Killip also organises a skipping club every other Thursday evening at Belmont Parish Church Hall Durham 8.00pm till 9.30pm. The new term starts on 4th Sept 2014 (fortnightly).
