Cecil Sharp House got a call from the BBC this afternoon, and they asked us to pass this information along. Please get in touch with us if you'd like us to pass along your information to the BBC.
To all traditional dancers:
The BBC have contacted EFDSS to try and find traditional dancers to take part in their new series "Dance EX. "
This is a TV competition from the same producers as "Strictly Come Dancing". The BBC feel that traditional dance is not being represented in the auditions they have held so far, and they would welcome any dancers from the Morris/Clog and country dance tradition. They mentioned that traditional dress/costume is a bonus and that groups or solo dancers can audition although they are looking for individuals.
The auditions take place this Saturday 19th of May and next Saturday the 26th of May at the BBC television centre from 9.00am.
If you are interested in taking part please contact us at Cecil Sharp House as soon as possible so that we can pass your information to them.
The BBC are so desperate to get traditional dancers that your auditions will take priority over others. So get your name down if this sounds like something for you!
email your information to efdss!
