The St Andrew Society has many individuals to thank for it's continuing success but perhaps none more than the modest lady who's birthday is was last Tuesday - and not a word would she have said about it. Newer members are naturally unaware that Alison, who still supports us virtually every week but now only occasionally ventures on the dance floor is a past Society Chairman who kept faith with it's possibilities despite membership falling away and Paphos changing around her. She was the main teacher of the class for 17 years of both success and struggle with standards high enough at one time to consider competitions and an established demonstration team!
I am personally very grateful for her continuing support, my style of teaching is very different but it's always reassuring to know that Alison is there in the background with her years of experience available if ever we need it. I hope the fun and enthusiasm of the class this week with it's great atmosphere and amazing achievements (3 sets dancing Culla Bay - 50% of the dancers never having danced it before - wow! not to mention 'Swiss Lassie') shows it was all worth it.
