Dance in Plymouth and my gorgeous Indian meal.

Firstly Thanks to my Husband for the beautiful Indian meal he treated me to at Cafe Indiya in Stoke, it is my favourite Indian restaurant and the food never fails to disappoint, I had Tandoori Paneer to start followed by Sag Aloo, Chana Massalla and a divine main course of Tuna Malabari.

Well I am happy to report that dance in Plymouth is looking good. I am amazed at how many different kinds of dance are on offer and thought I would share some of them with you. I will start with Feet First, an event which is happening this weekend. The event has been organised by the Tavistock Lions and Wren music, admission is free and will include workshops in singing, dance and music as well as dance performances by primary schools, dance groups and young wren groups, this is all happening at Tavistock college on Saturday 15th March and looks set to be a great day out for kids.

I would like to congratulate local street dancer Chris Gilchrist on his successes, it is great to see a local guy doing so well, My husband remembers Chris when he first approached Saints regarding doing street classes, Chris has come along way since then ad I wish him every success with his venture. Chris is now teaching Street dance at the Italia Conti academy of Theatre Arts in Plymouth.

Examples of other activities happening in and around Plymouth including the following:

Lisa's flamenco lessons at La Tasca Bar and restaurant, for more details call Lisa on 077757 008397.
