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. 

Dancing hands

 

Over the past few weeks we have been really working on our hand and arm holds in order to improve the overall appearance of our dancing.  As in all form of dance the hands and arms should move with expression according to the type of dance being performed.  In Cornish dancing we have been taught, for example, to 'shake hands with the opposite person' when creating a right-hand or left-hand star as shown in the photo. Here we are practising the dance Dons Fenten, created by Sue Prout. We all love this dance as it is pretty to look at, and is very light of foot.  Dons Fenten is Cornish for Spring Dance.  The adjective follows the noun in Cornish as this would literally read Dance Spring.  We have also learnt to hold our arms behind our backs in certain dances in order that we create a more co-ordinated dance, for example, in the Cornish line dance: Crowshensha.  This latter dance was composed in recent years for a Cornish dance competition by a lady named Mary Scarrot.   
We continue to meet each week at St. Mary's Church Hall in Falmouth between 2pm and 4pm.  Our numbers have risen over the past few months, but we still have room for more dancers if you feel like joining us. We are a very friendly group, and we enjoy the social side of these meetings as well as the dancing.

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.
