If I'm absolutely honest... (and I usually am) I found last week's class quite hard work. It was one of those nights when I wasn't quite firing on all cylinders and technology wasn't on my side either, I can usually cope with one or the other but both together was challenging, still, these things happen and P assures me that everyone enjoyed themselves despite the occasional moments of uncertainty.
It was great to welcome more friends back from their summer back home, and we had yet another new member joining the society which is very encouraging, but it was the first time many dancers had really attempted some of the newer dances on the programme and it was a bit of a shock to the system! We have 4 weeks until the ball however, and both the Monday and Tuesday classes to learn the dances so we'll have cracked them all by then - given that most of our new dancers still managed most of the programme I don't really have too many worries - we have to start somewhere and with 4 sets up at one time then it's bound to be chaotic! The Tattoo Night is this Saturday at the UKCA, (always a good night) then next week the ball tickets will be available. We already have many names down for tickets, but we are hoping to increase the numbers from last year; many of the people with names down for tickets aren't intending to dance but for both dancers and non-dancers as it is a very entertaining night and excellent value even for guests, so if you know of anyone who you think might enjoy it why don't you ask them to come along?
