DANCING GROUPS:

 

Social Dancing:

New leader Jim White

The Social Dance Group is and does what it's title says. We are a "Social" group that get together and enjoy ourselves while dancing.

Get this "Strictly" dance thought out of your heads, we are nothing like that.

Yes! we do "Ballroom" dancing, but do not wear ballgowns and bow ties and many of us don't have dance shoes or that great at dancing, but we know a few steps to get us around the floor and are willing to show you those steps.

Think about how you would like to dance to a Waltz, Quickstep, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Foxtrot or even a Tango. We can't teach you these dances (we're not teachers), but we can show you what we know.

To help you get those steps we also do "Sequence" dancing, "Line" dancing and even a bit of Rock& Roll. You will find many of the the same steps are used in all dances.

We start back after our Summer break on Monday 3rd September 1:30 - 4:00, if you can't make 1:30 then come when you can.

If you've never danced before it's doesn't matter, come along meet a really friendly social group and have some fun.

Nobody in our group will think "look he/she has 2 left feet". We know what it's like to try dancing for the first time, we've all been there and know what it's like and we will give you encouragement.

                                    Look forward to seeing you.

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.

Over the last few months we have had a lot of fun learning new dances such as Tintagel Triumph and The Pawnbroker and we have also (more or less!) mastered some of our more complex dances such as Cape Cornwall, Cornish Squire and Spirit Spriggan.     

Feeling happy with our progress, on a very hot day at the end of July, we celebrated our last session before the August break by tucking into a well-deserved cream tea.

After giving our dancing feet a rest throughout out the month of August we will start again on Thursday 6th September, 2-4 p.m. at St Mary's Church Hall in Falmouth.  Any newcomers interested in trying out Cornish dancing  will be very welcome to come along and join us then. We'll look forward to seeing you all after the summer holiday.

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
