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
ETA: BBC guy rang back and said they are only happening this Saturday. Usual BBC notice of anything; they want it yesterday.
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!
