James Aslop interview: ‘Girls5eva’ choreographer

“TV moves at the speed of light,” reveals “Girls5eva” choreographer James Aslop. For our recent webchat, she adds, “For a two-and-a-half minute performance we would get 45 minutes of rehearsal. That is not enough time! So the actors would come in after shooting and if they had time in between takes. I would be waiting in the rehearsal room. I would hit them one at a time, two at a time, three at a time or rarely I would get all four at a time. It was frantic, but I love that because of the energy. They were so laser focused and really honed in on the choreography. I also tried to make it fun for them. I didn’t want them to be stressed out. It could be their escape for 45 minutes while they were working. It was chaotic and frantic but fun. We had a blast in each rehearsal.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

45 best picnic spots in the UK: from Dancing Ledge to Dunstable Downs

The Jurassic Coast is brimming with stunning views, but the Dancing Ledge may just be the jewel in the crown. A few miles west of Swanage, it takes a little bit of traversing to get to, but the sea breeze, cliff top views and sounds of the sea once on arrival will be worth it. The Dancing Ledge is so called because when the waves wash over the horizontal rock surface, the undulations cause the water to bob about, making the ledge appear to dance.

First Spin: The Week's Best New Dance Tracks From TSHA, Jax Jones, NERVO & More

Beyond all this moving and shaking, we have entirely other kind of moving and shaking, via the best new dance tracks out this week. Let's dig in. Fresh voices are hard to find, but London newcomer TSHA is as bright and unique as they come. The young producer made waves with her 2018 debut and was soon scooped up by Ninja Tune and Counter Records. In October 2019 she graced Billboard Dance's emerging artists roundup. And just six months ago, she gifted listeners a blossoming bunch of tracks on the Flowers EP, but she’s already back with a new EP announcement and a lead single that’s perfectly set for summer fun. “OnlyL” is a subtle sunshine serenade, brimming with breezy melodies and hip-jerking electronic rhythms. Vocal duo Nimmo serve hypnotic melodies with a delightful echo-delay hook. It’s as calm and soothing a track as it is invigorating and free, an exciting first taste of the upcoming OnlyL EP, due for release Aug. 27 via Ninja Tune. -- KAT BEIN.
