I was welcomed back at the class by a beautifully laid out room courtesy of L & I, I was early but they were even earlier, however by the time we'd all caught up with news I was running late as usual. The programme hadn't changed much for several weeks so it was time to ring the changes; especially since the visit by the International Branch promises 2 big dance nights
Three 'new' dances from their programmes were introduced last week (though we have actually done two of them before I didn't expect anyone to remember them); Grassmarket Reel and Cramond Bridge both went very well, but the unusual reels in The Duchess Tree; combined with the large number of dancers made it a challenge, however it was coming together by the end and it's a very pretty dance so in a couple of weeks we'll have it safely under our belts. This week coming I have added a few more from the IB dance programmes, though most are dances we've done before we've not danced them recently; it's actually good to have a reason to bring them back on board. One completely new to us dance is 'Starter for Ten' - a beginner's 5 couple dance which is a bit of a rarity - in the past we wouldn't have been able to guarantee enough people to do this - but it's entirely possible we'll manage 3 sets - despite having to say a temporary farewell to some of our regular dancers - hopefully they all got home safely and we'll look forward to seeing them again soon.
See you soon Jx
