The rhythm of the year seems to be showing that the
energy of our contributors is devoted to dancing during the summer months. No surprise there then. I’m guessing that as the nights draw in the fond memories of summer will motivate more of you out there to set down your adventures for the delight and delectation of our readers.

Glad to welcome Paul White with the first of what I hope will be a regular contribution to the Newsletter. The subject is one which might just stir some thoughts amongst our readership. If it does then let’s hear from you. Contributions to the letters page or even an article always welcome. 

Watching the magic goldfish bowl the other night I was intrigued by the BBC2 ident clip of Cotswold dancing 2’s. Even more intriguing was an advert for Citroen cars featuring the dancing transformer. The special interest here was that the “star” is seen warming up before dancing. Just how many of us can say we always do this? If you don’t then why not invest in the “Warm-up Exercises” booklet available from your Federation shop,? A snip at 90p and worth giving out to all new members of your side.
