There is a little practice involved to learn the words and the moves, but this improves confidence. It did take me about three weeks to settle in and on the third week some new people arrived. They seemed a little daunted because by then we were starting I Will Survive and knew two songs pretty well. I suggested to them not to be put off and explained how I felt on my first night and from my own experience I am glad I started on the first night of term as I would have been overwhelmed too.
I had been to the Helix and really enjoyed the show. It was the lightness, banter and fun element that attracted me to CÓRus as well the joy of the singing. Our Choir director Kevin is just brilliant. His whole face lights up with the music and especially some of the dance moves! So even if I was in bad form going over to Malahide I know I would come away feeling lighter, especially when Kevin gets us to exercise our facial muscles with "lavatory, lavatory, bidet, bidet, wooosh"!
