Summer Weekend – June 2019

Hello Everybody We took some of our class to Clevedon for a Beginner / Easy Improver weekend and what a fantastic weekend we had. Gill did a grand job, keeping us busy on the floor dancing.  Our group really enjoyed it and for some it was the first time out so again,  thank you for making us all feel so welcome. At the workshops we had the following dances  – Christine taught two classics ‘Beethoven’s’ Boogie’  and ‘Gambling Man’ Helen taught her very own new dance ‘We don’t  make the wind blow’ (there was talk she may change the name, will keep you posted  🙂 ) Gill taught ‘The Shim Sham’ a fun swing tap dance which was suitable for everyone. The theme for the weekend was Casino Royale, so what did we do – James Bond – No, we all dressed up as playing cards lol!– take a look at the gallery. Thank you to our members for joining in the fun and dressing up for the night.

Hello Everybody Thank you to everyone that came and joined us for this our 10th Annual Dinner and Dance! After the photo shoot, we were all seated ready for lunch then Chris got everyone to stand for his version of grace, a few giggles were heard after the AMEN bit lol! Lots of things going on whilst lunch was being served, the quiz was the talking point and a little harder than the usual we all thought, plus balloon modelling with a few flying ones overhead, photos can be found in the gallery 🙂 Dancing commenced and a full floor was seen for most of the time. A few interruptions though with the quiz winners who were Steve, Trudy, John, Averil, Debbie, Adrian, Tina and Beverley, well done. The balloon modelling was won by Val as a Butterfly and then came the T-Shirt race Ha! Ha! (see video link here!) well done to Julie’s team. More dancing (Playlist below) and then before we knew it was time to say goodbye. It was a fabulous day, thank you to the staff of Lakeview Manor for looking after us all.
