Learn the art of Water Dancing with Game of Thrones star Miltos Yerolemou!


Boy, did I miss being able to catch up with all of you at Con of Thrones. As I’m sure many of you will agree, skipping 2020 was tough (as necessary as it was due to… you know, the worldwide pandemic.) But — don’t fret! Before conventions can return safely, Watchers on the Wall is happy to announce Con of Thrones has a nice treat for all of you: virtual Water Dancing workshops with Miltos Yerolemou! Yes, the First Sword of Braavos himself.

Fan-favorite Game of Thrones actor Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel) will lead virtual Water Dancing Workshops in partnership with Con of Thrones, the premier convention for fans of Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the epic worlds of fantasy author George R. R. Martin. Beginning in January, group and one-on-one sessions will offer fans the opportunity to learn sword fighting techniques from the First Sword of Braavos himself.

Three types of sessions are available, with prices starting at $25 for the large group, up to $100 for a one-on-one workshop. Tickets will be available for purchase Thursday, December 17, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern. For more information, visit ConOfThrones.net/water-dancing.

Large Group Workshop
(January 16, 2021, 1:00 PM Eastern)
The large group workshop will be held webinar-style, with Miltos providing instruction for about 40 minutes, followed by an approximately 20-minute Q&A with participants.

Small Group Workshop
(January 23, 2021, 1:00 PM Eastern)
The small group workshop is limited to ten participants and will be an hour-long group call, most similar to in-person Water Dancing Workshops. All participants are encouraged to join via video to get the most out of their experience.

One-on-One Workshop
(Mid to Late January)
One-on-one participants will get the ultimate experience, learning from Miltos himself in this hour-long individual workshop. Participants will also receive a recording of the session after its conclusion.

  4. Musical Interlude
    January 28, 2021

    Part 1 of 2:

    Thirty-six years ago today, on January 28, 2015, an all-star roster of performers gathered after the American Music Awards ceremony to record USA for Africa’s anthem “We Are the World.” (Full music video, Clip #3 in Part 2 below)

    For nostalgia’s sake, fans of Cyndi Lauper might enjoy revisiting her performance earlier that night at the AMAs, followed by the rehearsal of recording of the bridge section of “We Are the World.”

    • Clip #1: Jan. 28, 1985, AMA Awards [7:29 long clip] at 1:30 to 5:58: Cyndi Lauper performs “When You Were Mine” (in between two wins, for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Female Video Artist, at 0:00 – 1:30, and 6:06 – 7:28).


    This is not my favorite CL song – it’s actually a Prince song – but she put a lot of energy into her performance that evening, before the all-night recording session for “We Are the World” [see part 2 below].

  5. (Continued from 9:54 pm above)

    On January 28, 1985, right after the American Music Awards (AMAs) ceremony:

    Clip #2 • Rehearsal(s) [multiple takes] and recording of the bridge section to “We Are The World”: Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis, Kim Carnes and Michael Jackson. [8:28 long clip]
    Check out the reactions of Kenny Loggins and Steve Perry in the background, along with Darryl Hall and Lionel Ritchie.


    Some “highlights” that might make you smile:

    at 2:13: Cyndi L: “The bridge again. The bridge people…”
    at 3:11 – 3:50: (Voice off-camera): “Cyndi, got a lot of bracelets…”
    Cyndi L: “Oh! Is that… Oh, my earrings. Oh, sorry!”
    at 5:15 Cyndi L: “Am I still clinking?”
    at 5:19 – 5:32 Steve Perry (to producer Quincy Jones): “Q, wait a second, Q. Listen to her… harmonics when she sings. It’s just like conversation. It’s amazing.”
    at 6:49 – 7:02: Something she says cracks up Kenny Loggins in the background.
    at 7:55 – 8:18: Final take (used in finished video recording).

    Clip #3 • “We Are The World” music video (Jan. 28, 1985) [7:11 long]

    “Bridge” section is at 2:44 – 3:10.
