Tuesday classes are never, ever the same session twice... last week we were lucky enough to be joined by two experienced dancers, enjoying a brief holiday over here in Paphos, they lifted the class with their dancing knowledge but also appreciated learning dances completely new to them; this week we welcomed instead 3 brand new dancers, having had their first taste of dancing just the day before at the Monday beginner's session, they were emboldened to join us. They lifted the class by their enthusiasm and willingness to join in - which turned out to be a boon because so many of our regular dancers were unable to attend due to family circumstance, illness or injury. Inevitably we had to take things a little slower, but there was so much chattering going on in the sidelines it was obvious that many people were happy with a less frantic programme. The faster dances were eventually too much for such a small group of mainly inexperienced dancers, but we had several excellent strathspeys available to keep us going without exhausting ourselves mentally or physically. The Ring of Brodgar; The Dream Catcher and The Letham Ladies finished off our evening - The Letham Ladies had been taught at the Monday class so our 'beginners' had the advantage of the rest of the class since it was a new dance for Tuesday's session - and was voted a winner despite the lack of a teaching video... maybe we'll add one ourselves once we are confident with it. Hopefully I'll see many of you on Saturday at Burns Night otherwise I'll see you next week.
