Laban Guild AGM
Guild Council has now postponed the 2020 AGM and will combine it with the 2021 AGM due to take place in the first 4 months of next year. All members have received the 2019 Annual Report and emails/letters from Anna Carlisle and the Guild Council giving further information re proposals for the Guild’s future.
A CHANCE TO DANCE!!
The LMCP have developed a half day virtual dance event designed to bring together creative dance enthusiasts. We have developed a choreographic structure to Lean On Me by Bill Withers. (As you are probably aware Bill Withers died earlier this year; listening to the tributes Lean On Me appeared to have a degree of relevance for our current context.) Participants will be guided through the the content in their own homes via Zoom. Clearly a virtual gathering cannot replicate a typical ‘Dance in a Day’, it can however provide an opportunity for Guild members to meet, to create and to feel part of a shared dance experience. The proposed date for this event is Saturday 1st August 10.00 – 12.45. It is free to Guild members however numbers are limited (due to the number of thumbnail videos one screen can accommodate) therefore you will be required to confirm your interest/attendance. To that end we invite you to email Maggie at M.Killingbeck@ntlworld.com to confirm your interest. We will allocate places on a first come first served basis.
The LMCP are in the process of planning a new virtual dance event. This will take place Saturday 29th August 10.00 – 12.45 – save the date!. We hope to see many of you again at that event.
