Oh dear, I don't know how I'm going to last a day! I am excited beyond belief about Leeds Festival this year as it's my first time going to a music festival and some of my FAVOURITE bands will be playing; The Maccabees, GUNS N ROSES!, Queens of the Stone Age, Dizzee Rascal, Enter Shikari, New Young Pony Club, Klaxons and the ALMIGHTY Blink 182.
I've seen The Maccabees twice before and they were absolutely incredible. For my and my friends they were our first gig and we got completely smushed by everybody going mental to their music. Dizzee Rascal I have never seen and I can predict that he will be amazing to watch as I've seen him on the telly at other festivals :) I'm in a bit of a dilemma as what to take to eat, so far I've figured I'll take cereal bars, crisps and biscuits..so I'm thinking I'll need something a bit healthier too haha! Any suggestions? If any of you have any useful festival tips, please please share them because I really could do with a few pointers! Also, share your festival experiences, have you been to any this year?

I'm very excited because in A level dance at the moment, each of us are doing a 'performance piece', in which we take a piece of repetoire and make it our own. I've been assigned this dance from Christopher Bruce's 'Hush', which is all about circus folks! I've started learning it and making it into a solo with my teacher and it's so fun and quirky to perform :) Another work we're studying in Christopher Bruce's 'Rooster' which uses Rolling Stones songs as the soundtrack - how cool is that!? My friend Hannah is doing the 'Ruby Tuesday' dance, Danielle is 'Paint it Black' and Sabrina is 'Little Red Rooster'. They're all so fun to watch and Christopher Bruce is becoming one of my favourite choreographers. Luckily we're going to watch 'Hush' later on this year so I'll get a grasp of the character I'm portraying in my piece :) Who are your favourite choreographers and which works have you seen? Comment away! Peace x

Just had a lovely ballet class for the end of term, a break from the usual ISTD exam work and lots of unset excersises. We did a variation on an extract from La Bayadere which was pretty fast and furious, I have utter respect for anyone who could have done it on pointe because I certainly wouldn't be able to! Yesterday was the auditions for the 2010/2011 Ludus Youth Dance Company and we did some pretty cool lifts, but as I'm usually being lifted I found being the lifter quite hard, even though my partner was tiny haha! My shoulders are aching like mad but it's a satisfying feeling from working hard:)
