Kelley Beeston of Kalash decided to kick-start 2013 by hosting a Philippa Moirai workshop day which of course was snapped up in no time at all! The day was being rounded off with a hafla in aid of the worldwide One Billion Rising project with its aim to put an end to violence against women and girls. All this was way too promising to forego so Ashnah with our Janet in tow signed up to it. These gatherings are the perfect opportunity for the southern England ATS® sorority to catch up, and with the social marrying so perfectly with fluidity, formation, and floorwork sessions, we couldn’t go wrong and I’m sure I speak for all when I say we had a fantabulous time ;o)
The hafla later on was rocking and showcased Turkish, Indian, cabaret (moi!!!) Tap, Flamenco and of course ATS®. After the programme, everyone joined in the dancing and we all bumped and grinded ‘til the wee hours. Stayed overnight and returned wonderfully spent and just a little achy!!
