Connect & Create.... Music Choices Week 2

Pleased to receive this feedback:
"Amazing playlist  :) thanks so much. It got the whole ..... family dancing this afternoon from 2 years - 68 years :)"

"i am loving the playlist i play it all the time in the kitchen. when you sing i imagine we are all back together lying on the floor of the hall. not quite the same as the kitchen floor😃 Thank you so much for doing this for us 💗"
Have a good creative week....so good to be dancing together, even at distance or with those at home!
Thanks to Phoebe we have a new facebook page for Connect & Create so do share dances, music, art with us.

from Rosie:
Hofesh Shechter’s podcast, designed to be listened to alone, in a dark space, is an invitation to move without inhibition – the way you always wished you could when no one is watching. 
During this time when many of us find ourselves indoors (and dark spaces) we’re releasing this podcast again. So put on your headphones, turn off the lights…and move.  https://fueltheatre.com/projects/everyday-moments/?utm_campaign=1358457_Coronavirus%20update%201&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Hofesh%20Shechter&dm_i=4DTW,T46X,4PX56F,3ICQY,1
