Return to dance!
London Branch had a wonderful return to dance at the Open Air dancing in Kensington Gardens on 21 and 28 August. Massive thanks to James Fairbairn for his meticulous organisation which made the whole thing possible.
James also acted as MC on 28 August, enticing an ever growing number of passers-by to join members and friends of London Branch in dancing to the music of Dave Hall and Ali Forbes. The previous week, Frank Reid provided the music and Jim Cook acted as MC , inspiring dancers to brave the threatened rain and enjoy the dance.
It was good to see so many old faces, reunited after too long apart. We were delighted to welcome new dancers and we thank those who came for their willingness to join in. Please do come to other London Branch events, it was a pleasure to dance with you!
Thank you to James, Jim, Frank, Dave, Ali and all who helped make our first foray back to dance so pleasurable.
We now look forward to our New Season Dance on Saturday 18 September and to classes resuming on Wednesday 22 September at Park Walk, Richmond and Pont Street. Our COVID safety guidelines may be found here or on the right hand side of the website front page.
