Let's thank the good Lord that it is finally getting slightly cooler, with 3 sets up for nearly the whole night, long lost visitors popping in to say hello, returnees and newcomers all swelling the ranks we created enough heat ourselves without it being hot to start with. There was so much going on that it was difficult for me to judge whether or not it was a successful dance programme but I was assured that people enjoyed it very much; they certainly kept dancing to the end. Next week our semi-regular visitor Stuart will be here and will yet again treat us to a couple of excellent but challenging dances - (going from previous experience -the Guests, Moulin Rouge and White Rabbit spring to mind) I am looking forward to seeing what he's sorted out for us this time; he's an excellent teacher but I'm not sure if he's used to having to teach so many sets at once. I have to say congratulations to the set who completed Nottingham Lace - next week we will open the dance up to anyone who feels they can manage it, but this week I just needed to consolidate what we'd learnt on Sunday so that we had a core of knowledge, we also doing very well with Glasgow Highlanders - those people who were new to it found the progression confusing, which is normal - but the sets who got it right demonstrates that you only need to do it a couple of times for it to sink in. See you next week I hope.
