I kind of climb in time to the music. That luckily was something that Rob didn’t try and convince either himself or me of — that he’d found a dancer. So he worked around that, in my case. I was quite relieved that I could concentrate on the music. And I had the great pleasure watching day by day the rehearsals … of the girls.
