Influenced in the cultural sphere by the recent operatic excursion of a Joyfallee resident, the Joyfallee plovers made a quick (though somewhat tiring) flight to Melbourne to see a performance of Swan Lake. They were suitably impressed, although came away thinking that a performance of Plover Lake may have been even more compelling. Inspired by the spectacle they have taken up ballet with a passion and are to be seen at all hours practising their dance positions, the arabesque being a particular favourite. There is, however, a darker motivation behind their enthusiasm, which is their hope that they can use their new found skills in an entirely different genre for the delivery of insults – via interpretive dance (of course accompanied by loud plovery percussion).
