Hello all.

Matthew here. Sorry I've not been on for a while, been busy and there wasn't much in terms of news in terms of steps news. But on the 12th of May we had a half an hour performance which went well.

As for my quad gallery work, I might be giving it up to do something new (a drama group called feel alive) with which I have recently done a drama piece based on Sister Act. That's it for now.

Hi all,

Welcome back to the Steps blog.  Sorry it's been a while.

The dance group has been going OK, still dancing anyway!  We are still doing the small dance groups and the choir is going well.

We are happy to welcome Jennifer Cooper back to the group and we are pleased to welcome a new student called Debbie to the group as well.

Hi all, Matthew here.

Sorry for not being on for a while.  Steps have been doing rehearsals for a couple of shows that Steps have now done.  The first was for the Mayor's ball which unfortunately, I was unable to attend.  The second was on the Children's ward at Derby Royal Hospital which went well.

As for my Gallery work (Quad) it went really slow on my shifts nearly every week.

Hi all,

Welcome back to the Steps for the Future Blog. There is a lot of news to get through, so let's get started.

My voluntary job with 1623 Shakespeare Company has now come to an end.

Now for some sad news, we have officially ended the drama class for now due to a lack of students after Chloe...

Hello all, welcome back to the Steps Blog.

Since returning after Christmas everything has been going well in the groups.  Just before Christmas, I volunteered in the music class twice and all went well.

Hello again, not much to say about the groups other than to say that the dance and drama classes are going well. I don't know too much about the progress of the music group.

Steps had their Christmas party and had a surprise when the food was delivered as one of the people was a former Steps member in IZZY NOAKES.  It was nice to see her again.

We have just done 2 NCS Workshops and, from what the other people from have told me, the Workshops went well.  All seems to be going well in the dance class at the moment as well as in the drama class.  I don't personally know what has been happening in the music class, so can't really say.

I have been working really hard at my voluntary job with Ben and the 1623 Theatre Company and have now also just completed my trial month volunteering at the Quad gallery after taking over from Jennifer Coo...
