Finally the temperature was perfect for dancing - long may it continue. We welcomed many friends back to the class last night and we were joined by two newcomers, who were very quick at picking things up; we should have been bursting at the seams but so many of last week's dancers are away that numbers were only slightly increased. It was a slower night than previous classes, with quite a lot of necessary teaching but reports are in that it was an excellent night (it is sometimes difficult for me to tell). The St Andrew Ball tickets were announced as available, I reckon that if everyone in the class brings just one guest each we will easily reach the required number - but we shall see, it's always very nerve wracking for organizers who have had to make monetary commitments but I'm happy just as long as we get 2 or 3 sets!. One of our returnees has bought us some new music CD's (for which I'd like to say many thanks) and we have also bought some fresh tunes from the RSCDS to help update our selections, although these haven't arrived on the island yet. Sunday and Friday classes were advertised and although the Friday classes are slow to take off, the buzz of anticipation about the Sunday class was very gratifying. We also received the news that the UKCA fair organizer had rung to thank the society for our 'Demo'. Things are trotting along quite nicely - now to prepared for the weekend classes.
