Well, I seem to have survived so far and the most challenging of this week's activities are now over with, including giving a talk on Scottish Country Dancing - it's amazing how much information you can gather over the years- hopefully my audience found at least some of the subject interesting; I actually enjoyed both putting it together and presenting it which just shows what a glutton for punishment I am... or maybe I just like to have an excuse to avoid the ironing, which is now threatening to resemble the mountain in 'Close Encounters'.
Last week's class was quieter than usual as other activities, as well as the dreadful cold virus that is going around took at least 10 regulars away from the class, however with the assistance of 2 very welcome visitors we still managed 3 sets for most of the dances and it was amazingly quiet making it much easier to teach!! After a intense 'teach-in' for Pelorus Jack during the 'beginner's bit' there were some intrepid, and on the whole, very successful attempts at the dance itself, we've got it on the programme again for next week so we can hopefully consolidate our knowledge. Other dances on the programme are ones that we've been doing over the last month or two, all of which were pronounced fun dances, but were previously unfamiliar so I am hoping that getting them back on the programme fairly quickly will stop them being forgotten - especially the lovely Rose of the North with 3 couple rights and lefts. See you on Tuesday Jx
