Two weeks ago I said we'd had the largest class I'd ever taken, now I'm repeating myself- this week was the largest class I've ever taken ;-) several times we had 4 sets dancing and we still had enough people sitting out to form a fifth. The 'round the room' dance was yet again danced around the room... with a little bit of furniture rearranging. It was a great atmosphere, we welcomed more newcomers, and also returning dancers who are again travelling all the way from Limassol to join us - even better they are going to join us for the Ball. The class numbers are always good at this time of year, but surprisingly it seem that our numbers are increasing independent of the approaching St Andrews Ball. There are plenty of ball tickets left which is very surprising because it is a truly super night even for people who are not confident dancers or who don't have a regular dancing partner. Kamares Club is an intimate venue for this type of event, there is often a roaring fire and they decorate beautifully which compliments our own, not to be disposed efforts. The food is amazing. We have a Scottish duo who fly over to provide live music and the dance programme is now deliberately kept simple to ensure everyone, whatever their level has a chance to dance. There is more I can say to whet the appetite, but some things can be kept for the night itself - suffice it to say that even non-dancers have an excellent night if they hanker for a Scottish atmosphere and who doesn't enjoy having something to dress up for! (Kilts and tartans are entirely optional) see HERE for pictures from previous balls. If people are worried they won't have anyone to dance with then organise a partner for your favourite dance beforehand at the class - the ball programme is on the back of your ticket
