My last post was on 20th March when we had our last night of dancing. it is now 25th May and two months of lock down is starting to ease.
As yet there is no positive hope of dancing but as restrictions ease I am praying it won’t be too long before we can all start to enjoy music and friends again.
As soon as the club is allowed to have us back dancing I will be ringing to get permission to open up again so for those of you who have connections upstairs – have a word for us please and the rest of us will start praying to get the dance going again
Until then, make sure you are still practising in the hallway, the kitchen, the garage or where ever there is enough room.
In the meantime please stay well and safe.
I have checked with the club and we are a GO for tomorrow night! No restrictions due to the size of our floor. We have plenty of room to accommodate the dance and still maintain the new distancing advice for social gatherings.
Looking forward to seeing many of you tomorrow night,
Happy New Year Everyone!
We start dancing again on Saturday 11th January.
Lessons start again on Wednesday 29th January.
I am looking forward to a great 2020 with you all.
The dance will close on Wednesday 18th December and reopen on Saturday 11th January.
Lessons will recommence on Wednesday 29th January.
Some changes next year but will update you closer to lessons starting. If you wish to receive email notifications please send me your email for m to add to the mailing list.
Have a wonderful Christmas and thanks for another year of dancing.
Lessons this year will be a little different.
Wednesday will still be for new learners, or those wishing to brush up on technique and practise their basic steps.
I am introducing the sequence lessons to Saturday nights. They will run from 7.00pm until 7.30pm and this year all the lessons are requests from the patrons. The list will feature dances not danced at Rooty Hill before.
I will be taking the pace slower, only teaching a set amount each night and introducing that dance to the programme only when the lessons are complete. Unfortunately some dances will then need to be rotated as there will not be enough time for all dances as the new ones are added.
I am having a week off and will post the photos when I return. If anyone has any they wish to share – I am happy to post them all up here.
This year the formal will be Saturday 13th July.
No lesson list will be published next term. Instead we are going to try a new concept since so few are attending the lessons.
For next term lessons will need to be booked with Ian or myself at least two weeks in advance. The lesson can be any dance that is normally taught by us. Dances taught elsewhere will not be taught. You may request assistance with problems, to learn a dance or to enhance technique.
The dance will start at 7.30 and run similar to Saturday with no lesson practise sessions. If there are no lessons booked, music will be played for that half hour for personal practise.
