Bloxham & Adderbury dance out, 20 April 2024

After a most successful practice season, we opted to prepare for next Saturday’s Day of Dance by providing some of our younger dancers with the chance to perform in public in relatively quiet venues. We started at The Elephant and Castle pub in Bloxham, where landlord Simon Finch is a good friend to our side. With a gratifying 14 dancers turning out on a chilly, but sunny afternoon we were able to field two sets of six for most of the dances we performed over an hour in the pub car park in front of a small but discerning crowd. We then relocated to Lake House in Adderbury where we entertained a good crowd of residents, carers and visiting family members. Our efforts at both venues were much appreciated and Lake House kindly provided us with suitable liquid refreshments and cakes at the end of our performance there.

After dancing at Lake House we enjoyed some liquid refreshment and lots of cake!

Many thanks to all the dancers who have worked so hard during the practice season and to those who turned out today. We all made some mistakes, but that will help us to improve during the season ahead. Particular thanks must go to Jim Plester who has been ever-present during practice sessions and who was our musician today, providing an excellent soundtrack on his fiddle to our dancers.

We now have just one more practice in The Tythe Barn on Wednesday 24th at 7pm before next Saturday’s Day of Dance.

See you then,

John Ekers
