There was lots of colour on show during tonight’s dance session. We started the session talking about the NYDC performance that we went to see at Sadlers Wells last Wednesday. The three main themes we took from the show was breath, spoken word and rhythm. For the next two weeks we will be looking at breath so the dancers had lots of fun with blowing and creating a colourful studio.
The young people were blowing a handful of colourful tissue paper then tried to catch them with beautiful dance moves. This showed real creation from all the young people as they all showed their individual styles.
Made 2 Dance shared thier arts inspiration with the class. They have worked hard over the past two weeks to gather information and discuss with thier partner who thier arts inspiration is. They picked artist, dancers, musicians and dance crews. We then shared our top 5 facts and reasons why they picked that person/group
This little hedgehog turned up on our plot today. We gave it some food and milk and it was very hungry. A neighbour made a nest for it in her shed and will check it every day. Hedgehogs hibernate under piles of wood and leaves, so it was probably getting ready for bed in the bonfire pile on our new plot. Luckily we used our incinerator and sorted the wood out before we burnt it!
Here are some of this year’s crops.
We also had a good harvest of potatoes, cabbage and curly kale.
Winter crops like Mizuna and Red mustard have been planted.
Loganberries and raspberries were plentiful and really delicious, and we also picked strawberries, gooseberries and currants.
The trees donated by the Open Orchard project are thriving and some have fruited in their first year. We made Quince jelly.

Through the generous support of London Youth in the past we have been able to furnish the Lounge, purchase new equipment and restock vital resources which form the backbone of the work we do with young people.
