It's like a yo-yo our attendance numbers, last week over 40, this week just 26 - but it was a brilliant night and if I'm honest far easier to teach and dance. We had to contend with a slightly icy floor again - the man with the mop worked over time and still we had problems - though we think we know why, so hopefully next week it will be better. The dance program was a little frantic so it was just as well we are getting slightly cooler nights, though we still had a window open at one point. Two more classes before the ball so the program was packed with 'problem' dances - it gives a slightly skewed impression since it looks like all the ball dances are difficult, but in fact we have most of them 'under our belt', in fact even the tough ones we danced with very little problem - the moments when they broke down proving that we have truly learnt them, because the sets kept going and reformed correctly - formations we spent 15 minutes learning at the beginning of the season, newcomers were picking up in the space of a walk-through because everyone else has grasped the concept - and it's quite possible my teaching has improved with the practice too! If people feel a little tired this morning it could be because in reality we danced 12 dances last night - the super 'Scott Meikle' twice, and 'Johnnie Walker' was included in the programme - being a Medley it is effectively 2 dances - and it was great to see everyone laughing as they left the dance floor.
