Costume Changes and in the Dark: Monday 12th December

Today’s ‘Dance your Presentation’ was a resounding success, as not for the first time the students surprised me with their engagement, commitment, and above all their enthusiasm. All of their efforts were superb, but a special mention must go to the group who had developed a 5-minute dance routine to represent the circulation of blood in the body, complete with music, props, and even a costume change!

Hare, and indeed, Krishna.

 Today was the last of the Drama Communication lectures before I fly back to the UK, but there will still be one more lecture next week before the University breaks for Christmas, as I want the students to run a lesson for themselves in order to establish more independence. Next week is focused on the use of one’s voice, and so the students will be giving their presentations in the dark, with no visual aids. I am gutted that I will be missing it, especially as the whole experience has, to date, been one of the major highlights of my time here in Japan. Still, I am certain that the students will be able to cope without me (there will still be a couple of other teachers helping out), and will no doubt be inspired to perform their best routines to date.
