CORONAVIRUS - COVID 19 UPDATE
Its with a very heavy heart that I have to say that all classes are now temporarily suspended. You all know why and we can do no more than hope for the best and a quick resolution to this nasty bug. However, there is always homework to do, or for those who know me well I call it kitchen practice, as there are some good clips on you tube of latin arms and also some good basic figures which can be practiced in a very small space so no excuses,
When I have further news, I will let everyone know and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful pupils for their effort during classes and hope you all keep well in the next few weeks. I really hope to see you as soon as possible.
If you have a video clip of your practice and are concerned you may have not quite got it right, please e mail me the clip over and I can respond by e mail or we can talk by phone so you can keep up your dancing in the meantime.
Take care and best wishes
Well I think we all survived the storms and floods etc, the temperature is slowly rising and the spring bulbs are appearing, it has got to be good news.
Also good news is that we are fully back this week with Perdiswell on Monday's at 11am for dance exercise. We have some new faces, which is excellent so if you are unsure about coming along at first, then your feelings will be well understood and I can guarantee a warm welcome. Private lessons continue at various times in the week and then back to St Marks on Saturday evening for a group cha cha cha class. Again some new faces have joined us and they are so determined to get it right and are working so hard. Well done and welcome to all newcomers.
As always, the details are on the events tab at the top of this page.
If you are a beginner, please don't feel intimidated by others or the situation, dancers really don't bite and are usually more than happy to share their experiences and give advice.
If you have any queries or special requests please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be delighted to speak to you. The easiest way to contact me is by using the 'contact' tab above but if you'd prefer to call and leave a message (I may be able to answer but I cannot promise that) my number is 07928 610505.
Beginners don't need an expensive pair of shoes, just something comfortable but not trainers unless you are coming along to the dance exercise class at Perdiswell in which case trainers are fine.
There is no point in dancing of you don't enjoy it, despite the frustrations, so come along and join us and have some fun. The health benefits are well documented and you may like to look at the 'useful information' page if you don't believe me. There has also been a lot in the media again saying how important exercise is to prevent the onset of the very cruel disease Alzheimer's and reduce the onset of dementia. I am very hopeful that the research is accurate as I personally would hate to be afflicted by either of these.
So I hope to see you soon, and remember keeeeeep dancing!
