Some apologies are due to my lovely, talented and hard working dance teacher, upon whom this is based, pretty much word for word. Her inventiveness to describe audio cues in accurate, yet bizarre ways, is seemingly limitless. To be fair, our current track does sound sort of the same all the way through.
A problem with dancing to music from around the world is that we loose the convenience of knowing the language, so rather than being able to say "When she sings 'I love you', start doing jewels" you have to try and describe the sounds (even if you know the transcribed meaning of the words, it's hard to pinpoint that within the music) This usually goes hand in hand with unfamiliar tempos, instruments, or very complex and layered music.
So we continue to "undulate all through the eeeeeEEEEEeeeeeeeeaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiEEEEEEEE part"
It may seem odd to find these on a website devoted to museums, galleries and heritage, but as well as visiting sites such as those, my spare time is taken up with dance . The Nottingham Dance Collective encompasses all dance from traditional Egyptian to modern street dance. For Around the World in 80 Days, I was asked to record some of those odd little moments that cropped up in the show.
