DANCING GROUPS:

 

Social Dancing:

The Social Dance Group has now stopped for it's Summer Break.
We will return Monday 2nd September with a new group leader and with a new injection into the group.
I will give as much support as I can, but will be taking a back seat from now on.

I wish Alyson (new leader) and all the group the best for the coming future.
I have worked and watched this group grow in numbers since becoming it's leader.

The Social Dance Group is exactly what it's title says. A group that is very sociable people that love to dance (even though some of us aren't that good ).

If you want to join a great social group then come along to Perrenwell Hall Mondays 1:30 - 4:00 pm 2nd September where you will be shown some dance steps and dances by a group of dedicated members who welcome one and all.

Whatever you decide to do, JUST ENJOY IT.

The new leader will be :,
Name :-  Alyson Cowlishaw
Email  :-  alyson@atropica.co.uk
Phone :-  0770280801

                         

Come along and see how this group really enjoy themselves with great friends, great activity and great music all with the social aspect in mind and enjoy a cup of tea and piece of cake in the process.

We hope to see you there and who knows you may make some new friends. 

                                   And it's all completely free.

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. 

Roseland parc

 

Our group gave a dance display at Roseland Parc, Tregony, in July.  As our programme of dances that day included the Helston Furry Dance we decided to add big hats to our usual black and white attire.  Helston Furry is of course famously performed annually in the streets of Helston on Flora Day in May.  The mid-day performance is danced by ladies wearing long frocks, hats and evening gloves, with their partners dressed equally smartly. We all enjoyed dancing to live music by Aggie Folk and bringing, we hoped, a little taste of Flora Day to the residents of Roseland Parc.

Another aspect of Flora Day is the Hal an Tow, a colourful street entertainment whose origins go back a long way into the past. This year two of our group members were lucky enough to be able to take part in it, dancing and singing dressed in green leaves and flowery head dresses, and generally having a wonderful time.  Learning Cornish dance opens up all kinds of opportunities to take part in different events and activities and to meet new friends through our common interest in the dance, the culture and the history of Cornwall.

Our last meeting before the August break was a cream tea at Princess Pavilion. Our usual venue, St Mary's Church Hall in Falmouth, is currently being refurbished and we look forward to resuming our regular weekly sessions there on the first Thursday in September at 2 p.m. We look forward to seeing you then.

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.
