Have I mentioned before that time seems to be going past so fast I can't keep up with it? Yes, I thought so - it's certainly seem to have shot by since January when we started our first beginner's class at the Phoenix Club. Of the 21 people who attended that first class, 12 are still dancing with us - as circumstances and injuries allow, which is an excellent proportion as these things go. And since that first class we have also been joined by several visiting dancers who have since headed home and four new dancers who are all keen and talented.
However, despite the undoubted facts above, we only had a class of 6 for this week's Monday class - and only two could be really classed as beginners. Not that it mattered, we still enjoyed an excellent class - slightly confused at times due to a distracted teacher (me :-( )- but luckily everyone else was on the ball and compensated. We successfully danced Shiftin' Bobbins; J B Milne; Margaret Parker's Strathspey & my 3 couple adaptation of Lady Lucy Ramsey - taking advantage of the class make up to aim high!
Next week we have our last classes before the summer break but in the meantime I hope to see you at the class tomorrow, if you can make it, and even better at the June Jamboree on Friday (it's a slightly different layout to previous years so look for the signs). Luckily all the rain is forecast for the beginning of this week and not the end!
