Welcoming new friends
We can go for weeks without welcoming anyone new to our dancing sessions, then all of a sudden we are gladdened with multiple new faces. It was great to welcome some brand new dancers to the floor at both the Monday and Tuesday dancing sessions. All of them did really well too. Of course just because folk seem to pick up the moves quickly doesn't mean that they'll enjoy our style of dancing above others they may be more familiar with, however as long as they are prepared to give it a try, that's absolutely fine by us. Not everyone gets bitten by the SCD bug, but for those that do, it can actually be life changing. Not only does it supply a healthy dose of physical and mental exercise but it's something you can enjoy, hopefully, for the rest of your life. There are not many adult activities that can make you so happy, it ticks all the boxes for an antidepressant activity; music, exercise, focus, learning new skills, gaining a sense of achievement, working as a team, physical contact, social interaction, being needed and lots of laughter... and all without alcohol, lots of money or the need for a particular partner, what's not to love!
