Well done to everyone who turned up last Tuesday and enjoyed what was almost certainly the most challenging dance programme of the year. There are always dances that are slightly more challenging than others on the Tuesday night programme, but they are usually balanced by easier or more well known ones. This week however, it was the last chance to practice the less familiar Ball dances and every single one of them would probably be classed, for one reason or another, as challenging by most of the class. It didn't surprise me that we didn't complete the programme but everyone seemed to have an excellent time and people got up and managed things that they possibly wouldn't have attempted if there'd been easier options available! However the dancing goes on Saturday there will be a lot of fun on the dance floor!
Next week we will be relaxing the reins slightly with the return of some old favourites, but the dances we've learnt for the ball will be kept in our repertoire. Ian Robertson who will be playing the music for the ball arrived on the island last night and most of the final arrangements are close to being completed - and if anyone is worried about the route to the Kamares Club -now that the main road from Tala is closed - there is a button to download instructions of the route vie Kioli , either from Paphos or Peyia/Polis direction, on the Future Events page under the Ball poster. See you there.
