Country Dancing – March

Another excellent and fun afternoon was had at the Country Dance Group. There were 24 members present which meant for the first time we had three long sets of four couples. It was great to see some new members who had decided to come along too. We learnt a new dance called Blaydon Races and […]

We had another very enjoyable afternoon with three new members joining our group.

Country Dancing – December

Our final meeting of the year was a very enjoyable one. We learnt a new dance called “Borrowdale Exchange”. It was a dance that caused great hilarity with everyone having to dance with new partners and finding a new set to dance with. We had tea and cannoli (Italian cakes) half way as a bit […]

Country Dancing – November

October’s monthly meeting of the Country Dancing Group was very enjoyable as always, particularly as we had five new members join the group.

We will […]

Country Dancing – August

The Country Dance Group was slightly depleted in July due in part to it being a very warm afternoon. However the ten members who came learnt two new dances and were plied with plenty of cold drinks and rests between each dance. We also had two new members join our group. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon […]

Another enjoyable afternoon was had by all. We managed to put in a “strip the willow” element into the Virginia Reel and everyone managed to do this without much difficulty. We are repeating dances every month and introducing a couple of new ones. We did increase our total of men to three so if you […]

Country dancing – April

We had our first meeting of this new group on Tuesday 26th March. There were 18 of us and I was very impressed with the  dancing. We learnt about 7 dances and I think that everyone enjoyed themselves and were rewarded with a cup of tea and a biscuit half way through the afternoon. Hopefully […]
