Slackspace, our practice venue for the last few years, is moving! Therefore we will not be returning to the Old Police Station in Queen Street, Colchester. Our winter practice season will start in October, and until then please contact us via the contacts page to find out where we’ll be. We’ll post details of the new practice venue as soon as we know them.
Our 2015 dance season is well underway and we are having a lot of fun. Check out the updated gallery and music pages for some new pics!
Thanks for reading our website! We know it’s a little out of date and will be working to update it soon. Since the summer we’ve changed our kit and we’ll have a list of 2014 events coming as well, along with some enhanced pages. Please bear with us while this work is going on!
What a wonderful day we had last Sunday at the Rochester Sweeps festival! We all set off early to meet at our first dance spot outside the Visitor’s Centre at 10 am. Eight dancers, one still a bit sore caller and the musicians started off the day with a spirited Tingley, then followed this with a good old Cotton Reels. It’s always a good idea to start with those we feel safe with! We were very lucky that one of the other sides we were dancing with (I’m really sorry but I can’t remember their name!.
Practice as normal at Slackspace in Colchester, 11 – 1pm. I will be there to lead and coerce you all into some semblance of a group and Paul will be back to play for us again – thank goodness!
This means that there are only three weeks until Rochester. One of them will be our whole day of practice, which is good, but we still need to all pull together.
Remember to try to get together all your kit for the 21st April as well as deciding what you can bring for lunch
I hope everyone is looking forward to our whole day of practice on Sunday 21st April. We’ll be at Slackspace as usual, starting at 10 am and finishing at 4. If the weather is nice we could even do some of it in the road outside.
It’s a chance for everyone to drag out their kit from pre-Christmas hibernation and check it all still fits and to shine those bells
Please bring something to add to the table for a light lunch for everyone.
If people are still standing at the end of the day we can then all wend our way to The Forresters for refreshments
