Peter is a volunteer Dance Leader with DanceSyndrome and has recently taken on an administration role too, helping with our social media, collating research data and helping around the office. He has been heavily involved with DanceSyndrome since the very early days and he tries to join in with all aspects of our work, so we thought he was the perfect person to write a regular blog for DanceSyndrome! You can find out more about Peter in his case study https://dancesyndrome.co.uk/peters-story/
Here is Peter’s blog about his activity with DanceSyndrome in November.

I travelled to Preston to the practice for the Orbit show that night. We rehearsed it 5 times. Then it come to show time, we had 41 people come and watch us! When we had finished the performance everyone was saying how wonderful and professional it was. We were all tired and in high spirits after the performance.

Here are some of the great feedback we got about the show:

I travelled down to Preston to run the Dance by Example training course with Sophie. We did a few exercises, one with a chair and a scarf and the other was a museum exercise which worked well with the group. Then I got my train back to go and do my social night, where I DJ.

I travel to Preston to do our dance development day. It was a relaxing session because we work very hard on the Orbit show.
