To mark the end of term and to celebrate a couple of significant birthdays (I obviously can’t give their ages away, but you wouldn’t believe me anyway as their youthful looks belie their years), our Dancing for the Over 55s class held a picnic lunch after their class this week.

Gershwin for Beginners

Published on

Coming to prominence in the 1920s, the music of George Gershwin was the soundtrack to glamorous flappers, prohibition cocktails and the novels of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Later in the century with the rise of technicolour his music was used to score the lush 1950s Hollywood musical An American in Paris starring Gene Kelly. During the 1970s Woody Allen used Gershwin’s music in the opening scene of Manhattan. As a result, the sound of Gershwin is part of the popular history of America.
