I’ve been so busy dancing away this past couple of weeks that once again my blog is jam packed!
I am having the time of my life dancing and creating a piece with the heavenly Edward Watson of the Royal Ballet, who is – as I have mentioned many times – is a true dance god. I also got to see him perform alongside the divine Natalia Osipova at Russian Icons Gala, held at the Coliseum, followed by a wonderful dinner at the Savoy. A truly glamorous and sparkling affair.
Did anyone catch me on The Nation’s Fav 70s No.1’s? If not check it out on ITV player here https://www.itv.com/itvplayer/the-nation-s-favourite-70s-number-one/series-1/episode-1-the-nation-s-favourite-70s-number-one
I had a fabulous time in the studio on Radio 4 Loose Ends with a live studio audience that you can catch up with here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b054gxpj
Featuring myself, Arthur Smith, David Mitchell, Sandi Toksvig, Yasmin Evans, John Shuttleworth, Spoek Mathambo and Fantasma!
I hope you all got a chance to celebrate international Women’s Day last Sunday? It’s amazing the things women can achieve, and when we work together as a team all the more so! Love and support the women around you, you never know when you might need some love and strength in return.
So I got my disco on and headed down to the Roundhouse in honour of Save the Children, it was 70’s night and I intended to burn up the dancefloor! Save the Children is an amazing charity I am so proud to have worked with on numerous campaigns, and it was a real honour to be there and share in such an amazing evening to help raise funds. Amongst the funky bunch was actress and timeless beauty Helena Bonham Carter, the utterly gorgeous Dominic West, and fashion guru Mary Portas. It was Thursday Night Fever for sure!
Newsflash! I am so happy to announce I am going to be the Creative Director of JUDY! You can read all about it and get your tickets here http://www.atgtickets.com/shows/judy-the-judy-garland-story/edinburgh-playhouse/
Finally, the big day arrived and it was time to dance for Comic Relief! We all headed off to Wembley, along with 2000 others and well and truly got our groove on! It was such an incredible day, with the most amazing energy all around. You can see me and all my dancing buddies below
So here I go dancing into the weekend, and I’ll be back with more news before you know it! You can also keep an eye on my twitter for more pics and updates at @arlenephillips
