Fresh back from the Friday beginners class in Tsada Youth Hall, there were 6 'students' this week. I was really tired because we hosted a dinner party last night and it was 1:30 in the morning before we finished, then we were out all morning so I didn't have much time to prepare however rather to my surprise it was another really good class, in fact we laughed so much that Pete coined the phrase "learn with laughter". Because half the class were absolute beginners I based the class around leading down & up, casting, crossing, turning & hands across, all simple stuff and mainly using the travelling steps but we managed 3 dances (Bruntsfield Links, The Royal Deeside Railway and then The Wind on Loch Fyne ). It'll probably be two weeks before the next class because of the 'Birthday Party' and then Easter and it was quite gratifying to see how disappointed everyone was.
