Buffalo Gals are launching a new show, which will be airing for the first time on Thursday, April 5, at the Merlin Theatre in Frome. I love working with dancers, and playing for dancers, and now that I have several dancers I adore in the Buffalo Gals fold, I want to put on a bigger show with a greater emphasis on the excitement of percussive step-dance.
On April 5, we will be performing at the Merlin, and donating all proceeds to the Theatre. It’s an important part of our community, and has always given us a lot of support. Somerset Arts cuts affect the running of the Theatre, and we hope that, with a full house, we can give a good sum back to the Merlin arts programme. So, please, show up!
Three Buffalo Gals dancers will be performing that night, Jenny Read, Sibs Riesen, and Sarah Marshall–all superb flatfooters. We’ll also have talented members of Apakella Appalachian dance team joining us for displays of precision formation dance and other interesting and entertaining aspects of step-dance.
On the subject of Spanish workshops, the May week is now fully booked, and we are taking bookings for October week, running from September 29 to October 6. The teachers will be Alice Gerrard and Beverly Smith. You can enroll by contacting me through this website. It will very likely sell out, so let me know as soon as you can if you would like to participate.
