FOOT­WORK Prin­ci­pal Er­ica Dor­rill, with her Li­cen­ti­ate cer­tifi­cate, is seen here tak­ing time out with some of the Foot­work stu­dents dur­ing re­hearsals for their new show, The Voy­age, A Tour of Dance, which they will be per­form­ing on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15 at the Casa de Cul­tura in Los Mon­tesinos at 19.30.

Er­ica is adding to her al­ready ex­ten­sive teach­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions in dance and took her In­ter­na­tional Dance Teach­ers As­so­ci­a­tion Li­cen­ti­ate Bal­let exam back in Oc­to­ber. This is an­other step for Er­ica work­ing to­wards be­com­ing an ex­am­iner in dance.

Er­ica said: “I love dance and was very for­tu­nate to be trained by some of the best teach­ers in my pro­fes­sion.

“I am so happy I can pass on my pas­sion for dance and per­form­ing arts to all my stu­dents to give them the op­por­tu­ni­ties I had; I trav­elled ex­ten­sively, worked on stage as well as in TV and had some fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ences.

“Many of my for­mer stu­dents have gone on to achieve great things and al­ready in Spain, some of our Foot­work fam­ily are now per­form­ing pro­fes­sion­ally around the world or are now at top dance col­leges in the UK.

“I am cur­rently work­ing through ex­ams to hope­fully be­come an ex­am­iner, it will take time and a lot of hard work, but it will be worth­while in the end.”

Tick­ets for The Voy­age are €7 and are avail­able from the stu­dios in Calle Car­los Diez or con­tact Er­ica on 662 003 823. Pro­ceeds from the show go to the un­der­priv­i­leged of Los Mon­tesinos.
