Day 1 is off to a great start. Our international cast of dancers have arrived in Dublin and are already getting stuck into rehearsals for the show they will be performing in 10 days time.
The Take The Floor Cast of 2012 features 56 dancers all ranging in age from 15-26. Our dancers hail from all over the world- from countries including Australia, Portugal, France, Romania, Japan, Mexico and the United States.
The dancers have been working today under the guide of choreographers Michael Ryan and Nicola Byrne putting together the beginning stages of blocking and choreography.
Our performers have also began embellishing their performance technique with the help of renowned actor Gerard Byrne through various roleplaying, relaxation and concentration themed exercises/ activites.
Be sure to watch this space for daily videos and photos featuring cast rehearsals, candid moments and interviews from our directors, mentors and the cast themselves about their experience so far.
In the meantime, here’s a video from the Take The Floor directors after the first half of our casting call this morning:
