because next season we will be dancing at a different venue... unless of course the new building owner wants us back again! We'll let you know by e-mail, or keep an eye on this website. Anyway our last dance night was great fun, we had lots of our new dancers and visitor too so although there was only enough people for 2 sets and often there was only 1 set going there was plenty of energy and enthusiasm as we tackled the likes of Gyspy Thread, The Bridge of Athlone and Virginia Reel. The food as always was plentiful and varied though the extreme heat outside led to a few culinary surprises we were all nice and cool in the air conditioning and a good time was had by all. We are restarting on 3rd September at a venue yet to be announced but in the meantime I will be working on the tickets for the Tattoo night in October and the dance programme for the St Andrew's ball in November - see details (where available) for future events via Events tab above.
12 attendees last week, so this week the program was perhaps a little more challenging than it might have otherwise been because when numbers drop it's a great time introduce more 'interesting' dances, fewer numbers means you can teach more easily and it keeps it interesting... and then this week, there's 19 of us including some brand new absolute beginners as well as many more of our newer dancers! I should know by now that this will always happen, however everyone did really well with 2 sets up for virtually every dance and the Monday class excelled themselves by getting up to dance Mairi's wedding, which we had covered the day before - and keeping it going all the way through even when the inevitable blank moments hit.
Next week is our last class so I hope everyone is planning to come along and enjoy some easy peasy dances and lots of food. Entrance is free as long as you bring a plate of food... family and guests also welcome. Restart date is 3rd September, no doubt is will descend very quickly. We wont be restarting in the same venue but we'll inform people where that will be in the next week or so.
