Hosted by Rebecca at The Right Step Dance Company and Heather from Sun Pier House, the Medway Dance Network is a brand new and exciting opportunity for Medway’s dance professionals and other interested parties.

MDN will include monthly networking meetings as well as dance classes run by the dance teachers involved with the network (see poster below). The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, January 27th, from 9.30am – 11am in the Tea Room at Sun Pier House.

The initial session will identify dance needs within Medway and find those who would like to get more involved with MDN in the future. It will also be an opportunity to find out about current dance happenings, and to network with fellow dance fans, tutors and dancers, so do take along leaflets and business cards to share. If you have any ideas or items you would like to contribute, please let Heather or Rebecca know.
New for 2015 Dance ver2

Happy Tunesday!

I defy you to keep still in your seat to this! For lovers of all things folky and dancey, I give you Ranzo (The Wild Goose Shanty) by The Demon Barbers, a taster from their new album Disco At The Tavern, due in early summer 2015.

It will accompany a festival tour of their new live show The Demon Brothers XL, featuring dancers from The Lock In and special guests Matt Crum (keyboards/sax) and scratch DJ ‘Wax On’.

The album is set to capture all the energy and excitement of the live shows, as they took the decision to cut back on touring  to work on new material. A goodly part of that excitement is down to the announcement that the production team will be Emmy & Grammy Award winning producerDonal Hodgson and Kipper, best known for their work with Sting!

“We’re really excited to be working with such experienced producers and the demo track sounds fantastic, it’s just like being on stage! It’s been 4 years since our last album and we’re keen to show the world how much our music has developed; we’re hoping for a busy festival season!”
