February was a good Month of Square Dancing

We returned from the Christmas break on the 7th to find we had 6 couples in attendance – Same the following week – and the next week – and then down to 5 couples last week. We have had no newer dancers attending so we did a lot of revision of some of the movements not used very often – Even Dive Thru – What a dangerous movement if people try to actually dip to go under the raised arms that are attached to vertically challenged dancers. At the average age of dancers these days I wonder at the sense of Callerlab to still have it in the list. Curlique was dropped because people were having arms twisted – Touch ¼ is so much easier and can be used to replace it quite easily – but it appears that callers are more reluctant to replace Dive Thru with Pass to the Centre – Too many word some people say – then why not rename it!!! We even danced some rectangle dances with 6 couples – everyone enjoys that. Oh by the way – Look for our Advertisement for our Birthday Dance.
