In my early forties I took up ballet. Some folk thought I was quite mad, but I immediately fell in love with it and quickly became addicted to class. One day it hit me that I had no idea what the person in front of or behind me had been doing at nine o’clock that morning. What were the real lives of the class’s would-be ballerinas? From that, the seeds of ‘Dixbury Does Talent’ were sown…
When Amy Gathergood is left with a broken heart she joins a local adult ballet class for a much needed distraction. There, she not only learns how to dance but also makes new friends, each with their own story to tell. As the group prepares for a local talent competition friendships are cemented, new romances begin and for some, circumstances dictate that their lives must change.
But, will the dancers find happiness and do they have what it takes to win Dixbury Does Talent?
Before 2016 is over I’d like to invite you to share the highs and lows of The Dixbury Dancers as their lives twist and turn, bringing laughter, friendships, a tear or two, love and dancing along the way.
