Brrrr.... well it was a wickedly cold start to our 2019 season but there was a excellent turn out considering it was such a wild, windy and miserably wet night - and those who were dancing soon warmed up (though the stalwarts covering the door and tackling the complexities of membership renewals and burns night tickets along with the usual chaos of returning after a break, needed serious defrosting by the end of the night) . It was lovely to welcome some of our more occasional dancers back for the night, as well as a fair proportion of our regulars, even though quite a few were absent from ranks - inevitable given the weather and season. The programme went really well with 2 or 3 sets up virtually every time despite the number of new or unfamiliar dances. Both the completely new dances to the class ('Mrs Macleod' and the 7 couple 'Christmas at the Heath') were great successes, and will definitely appear many times on future programmes - others, such as MacDonald of the Isles and The Burns' Bicentenary Strathspey, haven't appeared on the programme for a long time, but are definitely going to be reinstalled as staples for Tuesdays. Overall it was a great start to the new season. I look forward to seeing even more of you next week - and don't forget about getting your tickets for Burns Night - there are still tickets available - details and menu can be seen HERE (please note that a vegetarian option is available in addition to the advertised menu ) please contact Irene for you bookings and to let her know of your meal choices.
