Last week I was confidently predicting a reduction in numbers but I obviously spoke too soon and we were still getting 3 sets onto the floor for almost every dance this week; we also did every dance on the programme. Even the 'Glasgow Highlanders' which the class definitely has a love/hate relationship with was performed with a certain amount of gusto - not everything went right, but recovery was spontaneous and done with a certain amount of flair! However we said yet more good-byes, and I received apologies in advance for absences next week so maybe next week we will be a smaller class. In anticipation of fewer numbers and therefore in theory at least, an easier class to teach I am putting a couple of interesting dances on the programme - this time the Elephant's Stampede will be earlier so we will definitely get a chance to dance it and we'll give the 6 couple medley Iona Cross another try - we used to be rather good at it, but it's a while since we've had it on the programme. The other point to having a few more challenging dances is that now the weather is hotting up the necessity of extensive walk-throughs gives us a chance to cool down between dances. It should be an interesting class, but we'll see - oh and of course we don't know who will be in the UK government by then either, but there's no point speculating. See you next week Jx
