I've no idea what happened. A week has got away from me without me noticing it and now I've got 2 weeks to blether about. I suppose quite a lot has happened so I'm not short of blethering material. There's been more Haggis consumed ... and very nice too ... as myself and other group members sampled various other Burns' celebrations around the Paphos area. Then there's been bacon butties consumed while our Group organisers considered all that was good from the various events and what might be improved in our own (a few things) - or what definitely shouldn't be changed (quite a lot).
Now our Burn's Night is over we are starting to decide what to do next - these are a few ideas under consideration so keep an eye out for news.
In the meantime we've been having some excellent turn outs for the Monday and Tuesday classes, and we've had some really great fun sessions. It has been a steep learning curve for many of the beginners but everyone appears to be enjoying the challenge and they are coming on leaps and bounds. Having said that, I'm going to drop the bar slightly for the next few weeks to allow everyone to consolidate what they know - though my ideas of 'easy' don't necessarily match everyone else's I know!
P & I are ourselves studying dances as we prepare for our trip to Winter School in a couple of weeks so we do know what it's like, in fact I better get back to it now - and try and kerb my enthusiasm to introduce you all to 'set & rotate', ' set & link', 'chain progressions' and 'diamond poussettes', all at once when we haven't actually covered a reel of 4 quite yet! Well next month maybe!! ;-)
