In normal times, we usually meet on the second Monday of each month at the Baptist Church, Wheeler's Green Way, Thatcham from 2.30-4.30 p.m.
Because of Covid19, we sadly have not been able to meet since March 2020. Due to the close up and energetic nature of barn dancing it seems unlikely that we will be able to get back together in the near future.
Our caller, Mike, is a member of Hungerford U3A and is also a paid caller at festivals and events; we are very lucky to have a professional at no cost. He makes the sessions fun, teaches us simpler ways to do steps if we're not up to the more energetic stuff, and has a brilliant music kit that slows the music down while we learn a new dance - without sounding like a 78 played at 45! You can also sit out, listen to the music and laugh as the rest of us tie ourselves up in knots. It's good exercise and great fun.
The cost is currently £2-50 a session, which covers hall hire, refreshments and Mike's mileage; this has varied due to fluctuating numbers, but I will always warn you if the cost is changing.
I will email the group when we are able to restart.
I hope you are keeping well, and will be able to remember at least some of the sequences!
New members will be welcome. You can contact me via the Convenor icon on the right, or ring and leave a message on 867037, or just turn up on the day, when we start again.
Happy New Year!
