What an unusual night... P and I left home as thunder rumbled in the distance but little did we know that we were leaving just before the heaven's opened, We headed down the hill to set up the class in sublime ignorance of the rain waters that were about to cascade down the roads behind us, and in fact we never saw any of it, but those intrepid few who made it to the class did indeed have an interesting journey - well done them! Many regulars where kept away by the conditions for one reason or another so we might have had our smallest class yet this season, but on this unlikely night we were delighted to welcome 4 newcomers to the class. Despite natural reluctance to commit themselves to the dance floor they all did remarkably well, dancing multiple times despite the programme being a challenging one for total newbies. Next week I'll make sure the programme includes a few more suitable dances for people attempting to learn in our fun, but undeniably challenging, classes (all of them will be from the St Andrew Ball programme, so they will be a useful inclusion). As usual our regular dancers (including our lovely dancing visitor) demonstrated how welcoming they are to new dancers - making sure they had partners for the dances that they could sensibly attempt; despite the many missing people we several times managed to get 2 sets up for even 4 couple dances. I look forward to seeing everyone back next week when hopefully we'll have just as enjoyable a night without such interesting weather!. Jx
