THE BUTCHER AND THE BRIDGE – A Musical Stage Production

Another October is around the corner, Yay! This means that the dance club I am a member of is gearing up for another mind-blowing event! As always its going to be EPIC and in order to share the love we’ll be hosting you TWICE for TWO DAYS! Isn’t that exciting? In order to give the show a richer feel we ran auditions for external dancers, actors and musicians to work with us, so expect to see 110% entertainment! Awesome innit?
Yours truly hopes to make some of the dances for this show as well so please keep your fingers crossed while I struggle everyday with flips and front rolls and jumps. I hope it will all be worth it because we will be screened before the show.  Dancing is not really my forte but lately I have this deep desire to improve and be a better dancer.  Singing will always be my first love but in these days when its been soooo hard to convey my feelings through speech or music, maybe dancing will do the purging for me.
I am so honoured and proud, yet humbled to be part of this movement.  Below is what the show is all about and I encourage you to read and go out there and get your tickets! (  Also follow @SODGC, @sod_tickets and @bluphoenixrebel on twitter for updates leading to the big event.  Also visit our website
