|Week two report and photo.|
The Scottish Country Dancing group organised by Jim and Celia Holgate met for the first time on Friday 10th February in Carradale Village Hall. Judging by the comments of some of the eighteen dancers who attended, the evening was a great success.
Jim, who was born and raised in Edinburgh and has been dancing for many years, showed everyone a few simple steps and then got them walking through a dance, started the music and they were away!
Malcolm Trott said “It was an excellent evening. We thought they pulled it off well and Jim got the balance just right between talking and demonstrating. The music was good and we’ll be joining the queue at the door for next week’s session!”
Audrey Gee said “A really fun evening and a good work-out too. I’m looking forward to next week.” This was echoed by David and Hilary Lord from Peninver who said “The whole evening was great fun and we will be back for more!” Laura Finlayson said “We learnt so much in one evening! It was great fun!” When in the village shop the next morning Malcolm heard comments such as: “It was good fun”, “….should get us fit”, “very enjoyable… ……We’ll certainly go again” and “The village has needed something like this for years!”
Jim said “I was heartened by the number of people who attended the first session and the enthusiastic way they tackled the challenge of the dance. We have a large village hall which can accommodate many more dancers, so let’s fill it with sound of music and people enjoying themselves!”
It was good to see everybody coming back again, bringing another five dancers with them. Malcolm brought his camera and managed to take a photo of some of the dancers doing one of the three dances that they learnt during the evening.
Jim hopes that anyone who is still thinking about joining in will come along next Friday (with or without a partner) and find out how much fun it is.
Fridays at 7.15pm
in Carradale Village Hall.
