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 Dancing

 

In March we danced on a further two occasions to live music  by the Aggie Folk band, which includes some U3A members and is led by Liz Grant.

Mid-month a large number of us entertained the Carnon Downs Memory Cafe, with some Cafe members joining in the fast- paced Comish Express reel,while the rest kept up a lively added accompaniment on various percussion instruments.
The Aberfest Cornish/Breton festival in Falmouth on Easter Saturday saw us performing to a heady  atmosphere in the Chain Locker and The Grapes pubs, competing for attention and space with well - lubricated patrons as part of a day- long sequence of folk music and dance. It concluded a very enjoyable and worthwhile beginning to the year.

We usually meet every week on Thursday afternoons, 2 - 4 p.m. at St Mary's Church Hall, Falmouth. However, we will not be there on Maundy Thursday, 29th March, as our meeting room will not be available 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. Our dates will be 31st January, 14th & 28th February, 14th & 28th March, 11th & 25th April and 9th May. Sue and Ray Hutt
