‘Tic - toc, tic - toc…” The metronome gave them their time as the line of youngsters, many with frowns of concentration, prepared to advance across the shiny practice floor.

“Heel and toe, heel and toe,” shouted the master. “Good! Up on the balls of your feet, and sidestep… sidestep… strike that pose, arm high… And back, draw back… weight on your back foot, Legolas!
Body in profile… this movement should look elegant, seamless… We flow forward as one… we turn, and spin – Up on your toes there!

Good. Relax. We’ll try that again - this time, hold your knives unsheathed.”
