Leeds flashdance update

December 6, 2011

Two weeks ago I blogged about an impending flashdance courtesy of a great group of women at Leeds Older People’s Forum.

The flashdance was originally planned for this coming Thursday but unfortunately it has had to be postponed due to a number of issues – some small issues regarding regulation, a slight nervousness amongst some of the dancers, and some expected very cold weather (I was in Leeds yesterday and can confirm it was so cold).

But, this is not a cancellation; it is purely a postponement until 2012. The group and its supporters are adamant the flashdance will happen early spring, allowing for more pre-campaigning work to ensure the flashdance is a successful kick start to a larger campaign.

In addition, the postponement means the group can ensure older people of all abilities – and levels of introversion/extraversion – can take part. They are hoping to train some of those less able or willing to dance to play a vital role in the campaign perhaps through video, photo or micro blogging, or by raising awareness of the issues and drumming up public support while the flashdancers are dancing.

The enthusiasm and determinism is definitely still there; we just have to wait a little while longer for the action.

We’ll keep you posted.
