Well I would say that wouldn't I! But it certainly felt fantastic to me and I hope everyone else felt the same. We had 25 people turn up which is the best number ever for a return class and despite it being uncomfortably hot and humid for dancing, virtually everyone was up for virtually every dance. All dances at classes from now on will be on the ball programme so it was doubly satisfying for me to see people tackling the new ones with slight trepidation and then pronouncing afterwards how much they enjoyed them and what good dances they were. The whole class got up to practice 1/2 diamond poussettes - which are needed for Neidpath Castle, you could see lots of people thinkin "ooh eck, why can't she keep it simple" (or the Scottish equivalent) and then - good for them - we got 3 sets up for the dance itself and the same people came off the dance floor with big grins on their faces mentally punching the air "we did it". There is lots of time to hone all our skills so it all bodes well for the big day. Da Da Da DaDa Da Daaaa. Right, enough of dancing - I've now got to change my hats and go and critique photographs, I wonder if I can do it to music?
