I have just reread my last blether. I'm always a little surprised when I read them because I don't remember from week to week what I've said, in fact it's quite a good diary of events, at least of my dancing life. Yet again I am a lot later than intended adding to this because so much is happening 'off stage', - so to speak - 'other life' is crowded at the moment, far too many 'events' and not enough time and energy! Anyway, dancing is an island of fun in this crazy world and the good news is that we've restarted the Monday 'Basic' class sessions. As normally happens more people expressed an interest than were able to come, at least for the first session, but small is genuinely beautiful in this case, so as long as we can get enough people to create a set and go through formations, it's worth doing.
With having our '3rd Tuesday' break the last Tuesday class seems a very long time ago. It was a strange evening since many people had to leave, for all sorts of reasons, half way through. It went from full on noise and busy-ness to calm and closeness in an instant - it actually felt like I'd taught two completely different classes, each needing a different level of engagement and style of teaching and volume - both of music and voice! It was slightly unsettling and when I realised it had gone 8 pm and we should finish it felt like I'd lost an hour, it certainly went quickly. This week will hopefully be more conventional, though the programme may be challenging for some, I hope there will be something for everyone and I'm looking forward to another great night.
