Just a quick note before you all rush of on holiday somewhere not wet! What is all this stuff about climate change...wet Wimbledon's have existed forever!!
Firstly thanks to everyone who turned up to support our display at the Folkestone Multicultural Festival - it stopped raining just in time for us to do our bit and there were enough of us to make it look interesting and fun. We got some onlookers up and dancing and we all enjoyed it.Perhaps next year we can get a bit longer to strut our stuff. A big thanks to Chris Walshaw and Richard Jones who stepped in last minute to play their wonderful music for us to dance to.
Next...Don't forget to come along to Broadstairs Folk Week in august. We are doing a dance workshop on Wednesday 15h Aug from 3.00-5.00 at Upton School with Meridian providing the music. It is much better if we have experienced dancers there to help us show the novices how it's done so please try and come along to help make it all go well. On the same evening Meridian are hosting the evening Bal, again at the school from 19.30-22.30. So time to let your hair down ,meet old and new friends and just have some fun.
Next... On September 15th we are again doing a spot at Deal Maritime Festival...On the seafront close to the pier between 1230 - 1400 we will be dancing for the public but encouraging them up onto their feet to have a go. It was a lovely day last year with the opportunity to sit and have a drink whilst watching other performers, so do try and get along and help us put on a good show. The following day is Les Batons and to kick start us after the summer break we have arranged for a French Group Chemins de Traverse to come and play for us. I haven't heard them but am assured they are great... so don't miss out on the opportunity to hear some great music.
I am off on holiday but expect more emails and reminders when I get back!!!
Have a good summer
