Make a Move makes the news with the BalletBoyz!

A group of mums attending our Moving on Up course were delighted when two of the BalletBoyz dropped in.

The BalletBoyz were performing at Bath’s Theatre Royal this week. Ed Pearce and Josh Wild, two members of the company, joined the Make a Move group with their warm-up session and other creative exercises including yoga.

newspaper clipping about the BalletBoyz attending a Make a Move sessionMichelle Rochester, dance practitioner and founder of Make a Move said:

“We laughed, moved and relaxed together. We exchanged stories of how we have seen dance and movement have a life-changing effect on people. The boyz said they had seen this when they visited Ethiopia. And closer to home we told them how one of our mums felt terribly low, she was locked in a bathroom with a pile of pills, considering suicide, when she remembered some of the things she had learnt on our course. She did some breathing exercises and listened to some music, and then she was able to unlock the door and face the word again.”

“The Boyz were great with the mums who attend our course and we want to thank them so much for joining us.”

The whole thing even made it into the Bath Chronicle’s Bath Weekend Magazine!
