This has been an ultra busy week and every time I've sat down intending to update this blog something has distracted me - but now I've finally found a moment to myself it's difficult to know where to start. Not only does the last class seem ages ago already, but I hadn't realised that I'd missed commenting on the previous session too. As I've said so many times before, it's impossible to predict how an evening will go. Two weeks ago I was expecting quite a respectable turn out, but though people arrived bright and early we only just managed to get a set together, which meant it was a long evening and very hard work for everyone. However enjoyable it is to dance, sometimes it's good to have the chance of a rest too! This week, instead of a reasonable number of early arrivals only one or two managed to make it early and I was anticipating another strenuous night, but as 6 pm approached people started streaming in. Like so many of our dance nights we had a very different mix of dancers from the recent weeks. It was wonderful to welcome people back to the class, who we haven't seen for years, as well as others who haven't been able to come regularly since we restarted. It was great fun and a super atmosphere. We managed 2 full sets easily. The piece de résistance was teaching and dancing the 5 couple 'Staircase to Syria'. Not only new to the new dancers, but to many of the more experienced ones too. Well done to all concerned.
Next week is our 'fallow' week - unless I advertise otherwise the next class will be on 26th April. It's frustrating to have to wait, but on the other hand time is passing so fast no doubt it'll be here before I know it!
