McWhinney took on a complex extract from David Dawson’s A Million Kisses to my Skin, which required delicacy and accuracy in its delivery. McWhinney was as jazzy and sparky as you could wish but the solo ends abruptly and was the shortest contribution.

i’m seeing so many things about wendy whelan’s retirement and all i can think about is the story from one of my intensive classmates where she was eating doritos in an elevator and wendy got in and asked if they were good

is this suggesting that Wendy Whelan has never tasted a dorito
