National Festival News – January 2016

At the producers meeting in September 2015 it was clear that the theme of ‘The Elements’ had certainly provided a creative platform. The producers rose to the challenge with some fantastic themes, music and costume ideas that will have the audience spellbound. Chris Christodoulou shot some great pictures for the programme of this special event on 30th April 2016 at the great venue of The Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
The area around The Symphony Hall has a wealth of bistros, cafes, restaurants, cocktail bars and more to make for a wonderful day out or a weekend away. There are plenty of hotels with great deals in the vicinity of the Symphony Hall to suit many preferences. Discounts have been secured with a number of hotels and this information is available to members through the regional chairs and member liaison people.
The ticket sales are strong with half of the available tickets already sold following direct communication to all teachers and through our magazine ‘Moving Together’. We are expecting a sell out so buy tickets soon before they are all sold.
Tickets are available to book on-line, by telephone or in person from The Symphony Hall Box Office.

National Festival News – April 2016

The Keep Fit Association is set to dazzle spectators at our biennial national festival on Saturday 30th April. The showcase of performances, held at Birmingham Symphony Hall, will be a celebration of dance and movement around this year’s festival title ‘Move to the Rhythm – Elements of Dance’.This celebrates the very best of the Keep Fit Association, where performers will work around themes of earth, wind, water and fire to create some unique and inspiring pieces.
The Keep Fit Association is a long-established body from 1956 and is dedicated to the provision of safe and effective exercise, movement and dance. Our product, KfaMoves exercise classes, is based on the movement analysis principles of Rudolph Laban. Laban’s ultimate aim was that movement was for all and that dance should give joy to people through moving together; an aim that the Keep Fit Association both embrace and promote in all that we do.
The show spectacular draws Keep Fit Association members from all corners of the country to present original performances of exercise, movement and dance. Members come from many walks of life and of varying ages; this festival’s youngest team will travel from the channel island of Alderney. This commitment to their association does not come cheap, with the team having to raise £10,000 between them to cover travel costs, accommodation and other. Angela Stanley, the team leader for the Keep Fit Association Youth Moves Alderney team, said “It was hard work getting the funds together but the festival is worth it! The team is so excited about performing in front of so many people and I’m proud of how much we’ve achieved so far.”
The Keep Fit Association champions exercise and fitness for people of all ages and many of our participants have been coming to classes for a great number of years. The youngest performer this year is 10 and the eldest is 81. Lynne Casey, the show’s producer, believes this is a testament to the Association’s reach and durability; “People have fun when they come to our classes and get to see their friends, we’re like one big family. We believe in the joy of movement and holistic wellbeing; we want to share this with as many people as possible.”
