Despite 46 yearsseparating Margaret and grand-daughter Nicola they have dancedalongside each other for over a decade in competition and at weeklyrehearsals held at Belmont Comprehensive School.They will take to the floor together at the annual North East Panorama festival of movement and dance inDarlington on May 18.Margaret, from Bishop Middleham, first joined Durham KFA in 1975 and inspired Denise, from Spennymoor, andNicola, from Bishop Auckland, to follow in her dance steps. “I’ve always loved music and dancing but since I joinedthe KFA I’ve travelled all over the country and made lots of lovely friends. I’ve always said even if you chopped mylegs off I’d still manage to go to class somehow,” said Margaret.Passing on a love of danceBothDenise andNicola have alsotrained as dance teachers. Denise haschoreographedroutinesfor PanoramaandNicola is abouttotake on a nationalleadership role with YouthMoves, aproject aimed at makingdance moreaccessible toyoungpeople.

The groupoffers dance classes for adults, youngpeople, matureandolder moversandseated exercise classes for people with mobility limitations or disabilities.LynneCasey, chair of KFA MovesNorthEast, said: “It’s anamazing achievement tohave three generations of onefamily dancing together andit just showsthatexercise, friendship, enthusiasmandmotivation really does lead to along and happy life. KFA Moves is not somewhere you gojust tosweat and burn off calories, it’s like an extendedfamily of women who love dance and express themselves through movement.”(Matthew Moore)North East RegionWe had a fantastic day that showcased a wide variety of movement, exercise and dance fromBranches, North East Teams, Youth Moves Teams, and our worthy successful dancers at thisyear’s KFA Championships.We also had very good coverage in the Press this year. Matthew Moore, from Honeypot Media,sent out a Press Release based on three generations of participants (Margaret Johnson, DeniseDurkin and Nicola Pilmoor, all from Durham Branch) and sent it out to relevant media. The articleappeared in the Press all over the region, and Nicola spoke about Panorama on BBC Radio Teeson the morning of Panorama Day. The Northern Echo printed the article, but also sent a reporterto cover the event on the day, and there were photos and a write up on the following Monday.Matthew also sent his article (some of which you can read below) to Dancing Times and DanceToday, as well as Womans Own magazine and The Lady. This was excellent coverage for notonly the event but our organisation as a whole.Group and Action Photos, taken by Alan Brown at Panorama, can beviewed and ordered at £1 each – see your Team Producer for details
