The Social Dancing Group 
“Wishes a very Happy New Year to you all”.
------------------------------------------------------------
“I’ve got 2 left feet”, ............ “What me! I can’t dance”.
How many of you have uttered those words and talked yourselves out of even trying to dance.  
Some of our group members had even said it in past, but proved themselves wrong.
We can show you that you do have a right foot as well as a left foot and with a little help you can dance.  Plus you can have a lot of fun while doing it.
We have members of our group (men and women) willing to show you some steps and dances to get you started.
We may never reach the Strictly standard (and do any of us really want to), but we do enjoy ourselves and we are a very friendly social group.
Give yourself the confidence to dance around the floor instead of just shuffling your feet.
We can show you some sequence dances and some of the ballroom steps, but you have to take the initial step and come along to Perrenwell Hall.  Mondays  1:30pm.
If you have any questions then .......... email, text or phone.

Cornish Dancing - Dons Kernewek:

"Dancing could be the best exercise of all to get maximum brain benefit!" These were the words of the presenter of the programme, "The Truth About Getting Fit", shown recently on BBC1. The programme also examined the health advantages of running and cycling but concluded that, for physical benefits plus enhancement of brain function, dancing came out on top. 

Cornish knight dance

 

We have had another happy year dancing to Cornish music, learning dances both old and modern. Our group is steadily growing in numbers, but please feel free to join us every Thursday at St. Mary's Church Hall in Falmouth between 2pm and 4pm. We are always pleased to welcome newcomers of all abilities.  Please note, however, that we are taking a short break and will not be meeting for the month of August.  Come and put on your dancing shoes for the start of our new term on September, 6th.  Some of us wear tap shoes, others trainers or even boots in the winter months.  The proper mode of shoe would be the Cornish scoot, which some of us would love to try, but it seems that the last of these were made by John the Fish (of Brenda Wootton fame).​

We would like to wish our solitary male member - Andy - a speedy recovery as he has been a little under the weather of late. We hope to see you back soon Andy: KEEP DANCING!

Sue's patience in teaching us is to be admired as the first photo shows us learning an older dance called Cornish Knight. Once we start laughing, however, it is extremely difficult to concentrate and this we must do in order to coordinate our dance moves and to exercise our brains, but then laughter is good for the soul!
​This month's photos show a view of the 3pm tea break, with a few of the keener members continuing to be instructed by Sue in the intricacies of Cape Cornwall a dance created by Sue and her friend. All the other members are busy at this time partaking in tea and biscuits!

The first photo shows the dance Cornish Knight, and the other three are some of us dancing Cape Cornwall.

Our weekly sessions take place on Thursday afternoons at St Mary's Church Hall in Falmouth and we are always pleased to welcome new members.

Rock and Roll

ROCK AND ROLL Rock and Roll will start again in the New Year. Please note the change of venue and day. We are moving to the Parish Rooms at Pulla Cross, which has a lovely floor for dancing, free heating and wi-fi, a large car park, and has to be the cheapest hall to hire in the area. I hope the committee are impressed. We are changing to Wednesday evenings, same time, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., and hope that those people who couldn't make Tuesdays will be able to join us. Our dates will be 31st January, 14th & 28th February, 14th & 28th March, 11th & 25th April and 9th May. Sue and Ray Hutt
