Sometimes we have slightly fewer dancers but it feels a really full class, other times we have a similar number and it feels a bit sparse. This week it was definitely the former - despite the absence of many of our valued regulars the class seemed as busy as usual especially when we twice managed to dance with 4 sets up. We rattled through the programme despite the rattling of the rain as it lashed down in the first really significant storm of the season. Luckily we'd got all the equipment in and many of the class before it started and although I had to talk even louder and the music volume was high, it gave a definite Scottish feel to the session and we could keep the end door open for some proper fresh air rather than depending on the A.C. Since we had several minutes left over this week, next week I'm going to add an extra dance to the programme, we don't have to dance it but if we have time for one more, why not.
By next week we'll have had our Tattoo night, we checked out the DVD today and it looks really good, especially played on the big screen at the UKCA. The more the merrier on the night but if you want to come at this late stage it's probably best to check with Debbie at the UKCA first to ensure she's good for the catering. Other details can be found on the Future Events page. On the same page you'll find information on the St Andrew's Ball - tickets are now available, or if you don't want to pay quite yet you can just book your place in Irene's magic book. I'll see you on Saturday I hope. Jx
