Over the months since we started in January 2019, we've welcomed some new members, and others have decided that it's not for them, or have other commitments. Our numbers have ranged between 12 and 23. A few people are recovering from injury (not caused by barn dancing!), or illness, and we wish them well and hope to see them back with us soon. More new members are always welcome; come along to see if you like it! With higher numbers we can do a bigger range of dances, and people can more easily take a break.

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.

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.
