A great afternoon dancing and exhibiting skills learnt in class by the children. Attended by parents, grandparents and friends, time flew by and we consumed lots of scones with cream and jam plus cake as well as dancing their socks off. Again thanks due to Mothers for providing the tea and Richard for supplying the music equipment.
Dance at Sarratt July
An event for the Adults. We were again dancing the balmy summer night away at Sarratt`s Village hall, with a lovely wooden floor. A great opportunity for people coming to my classes to put into practice all that they have learnt and enjoy an evening just dancing, sharing food, drinks and a good time. The next one in the Spring.
Silver Sunday October – Open Age
It was exciting to be asked to do a slot for Open Age in Queens Park when they had a Silver Sunday dance afternoon. Along came Anthony and Margaret to assist me. We enjoyed the afternoon which was packed out and many got up to learn some dances during my session.
