Angels and Aeroplanes, our Journey by Lauren, Melissa and Jordan

NL2 came together to plan their performance for one big drama. We had a planning meeting and decided on a dance performance to music from the Rocky horror show and The greatest showman.

We met up every week to rehearse and the dance instructors from AK Dance (April and Keira) came along each week with some of their dancers to teach us a routine. It was hard work and there were lots of ups and downs with mixed emotions. We decided that we would like to dedicate our performance to our friend and network member who passed away last year Scott Connor.
