Rachael O ‘Neill’s, Any Part of You Will Do. R & D, plus scratch night at Yorkshire Dance.
“We’ve just finished a two-week residency at a rural dance space in Sussex and now we’re heading up north for a week. Rachael is leading daily class for Pro Dance Leeds at Yorkshire Dance and myself, Jess Haener and Tal Weinstein will be continuing to develop the piece under Rachael’s astute direction.
Our training is a fascinating mix of training, switching between fighting monkey games and yoga, and there’s ballet classes and more yoga run by resident ballerina and super mum, Pippa Duke.
This afternoon we warmed up by letting my toddler lead our movement around the room, flying low style. At night I’m cracking ice puddles with him along the lane, listening to the Owls hooting under the super bright moon and the incredible show of stars.”
