Well, its been a hectic but really enjoyable summer of dancing. I’ve mainly been dancing around the northern end of the country … having been to Holmfirth and Whitby festivals and a weekend of dance based around Newcastle.

In my eyes nothing can beat a good festival and Whitby has to be one of the best. I went with my rapper team and we received such a warm welcome, with plenty of encouragement from the crowds and other teams. There are always loads of workshops to choose from too. I went to the ‘Instep’ step-clogging all week and am truly inspired to buy some new clogs! I’ve come away with my bit of lucky heather and will definitely be returning in the future …

This edition of the newsletter is packed with accounts of weekends away and
dance events (Some of these are entitled ‘Team Talk’). Thanks to all those people that
answered my last minute email plea for articles! The newsletter is much more interesting when YOU the readers contribute YOUR news!

Once again Adrian has sent in some interesting Archive information … ! especially like the photographs from the Cecil Sharp book that was so generously donated.

Two workshops during the Autumn to get your teeth into … with several more planned for the Spring (look out for those on the website or in the next newsletter).

If you haven’t already booked for the AGM weekend ….. why
not???! If you’re going, see you there .. .
