For once I was right and the anticipated reduction of numbers occurred - though we still managed 2 sets easily. The program was intended to challenge but also proved great fun though it was a steep learning curve for one lovely newcomer, she managed really well so hopefully we haven't put her off! The Elephant's Stampede was tackled well, even the set where most of the dancers hadn't done Schehallion reels before would have conquered the dance if we'd had more time to repeat it - which is why I've put it onto the program again next week - despite all the other dances being very well known or easy as befits the 'end of term' class.
Tomorrow night we are holding our 'Picnic in the Park' at the Elea Golf club; as usual there has been lots of preparation going on behind the scenes and it should be a magical night - if you want to help us decorate please come along to the Elea at 10 a.m. otherwise make sure you are there prompt at 7 pm so you can get the maximum out of a lovely night - I hope to see you there. BTW, the dances are all very easy ones so everyone can do them, but if you really want to know, the list of dancesis HERE (just scroll down to the Picnic in the Park) there are no links attached to them, but if you just google the dance name then the videos will come up if there are any.
