So, this is the first time I’ve been involved in running a hafla.  It’s scary and exciting all at once.  I went along to the venue today with Caroline and had a look. The venue, ‘The Underground’ at Teviot Place, is a place that I’ve been to in the past for club nights and must admit I’d been having trouble wrapping my head around the thought of it being used for a hafla, but having gone today and had a look around (without a club night’s paraphernalia in the way) it all became clear.  This …is gonna be awesome.

Teviot, the oldest purpose-built student’s union in the world!

There’s a space off to the side of the stage that we can cordon off and use as a performers area, the stage is a good size and there’s enough floor space infront of the stage to accommodate large groups of dancers (which there will be at least one of).  There is seating on the same floor as the stage and there’s also a balcony that runs half way around the space (so you can feel like you’re at the ballet or opera!).

And… did I mention I’ll be performing at this?  This will be my first ever hafla performance (despite performing professionally for over a year now)!

And, the fabulous Elspeth ‘Swishandhips’ has set up paypal so you can buy your tickets in advance – I’ve got a button for it on the front page of my website as does Caroline.  Tickets cost £8 advance/£10 on the door, the hafla will run from 7-10pm on Thursday the 18th of March – that’s two weeks today!  I better sort my choreo out…

Oh – if you enjoy reading my blog you can click on the “Email subscription” button on the top left hand side of the page (it says “sign me up!”) and it will automatically email you any new blog posts that I make.  I’ve found it quite a handy tool for keeping up with the other blogs I like to read.
