We were back to 40 attendees last night, but some were non-dancing visitors who happily enjoyed the evening from the sidelines. We had more UK visitors who were dancing friends of dancing friends and again it was great to see how welcoming the class is and how much fun our visitors find us. It was also great to welcome back more old friends popping over for pre-ball refreshers. It is still amazingly warm and it was no problem for the man with a mop to sort out the floor and have it dry before the hordes arrived which was a good thing because it was a wild night of dancing with lots of fast and furious stuff. There were no real dance breakdowns despite the number of newby dancers willing to get up and try truly scary stuff, well done to everyone who is promoting such a great atmosphere - our newer dancers are getting masses of practice which is the only way to learn but can be the hardest thing to do - and this atmosphere in turn is keeping the society active and vibrant. Next week it's the Ball, which is just as much fun with posh clothes added, we will have a brilliant time.
