1st Birthday Party

1st Birthday social

What a great evening. Thank you to everyone that came along and danced.

Thank you so much for the raffle prizes and all your donations.

It was great to see how far you have all progressed and enjoyed yourselves.

After the hall cost was taken out, we all raised another £522 for Dorothy House.

Phew! After a busy morning of sorting out all of the crates and putting them back into storage, going to a cafe for a late breakfast and a glorious afternoon nap, I feel more able to write a post!

What a fantastic 1st birthday party social 😁 We danced (a lot). We chatted. We played a couple of games (with prizes) We had loads of laughter 😅 And we raised a fabulous amount of money for Dorothy House 💰💸

Thank you Cassie Topliss and Brian Jones for helping us set up and then packing everything up at the end. It would all be so much harder without you guys help 😘

Thank you also to Susan for going around the hall collecting the rubbish and empty plates during the raffle. It was such a thoughtful thing to do and a huge help ☺️

And a Thank you to the anonymous class member for arranging the birthday cake (and Hazel for making it) 🎂

And a massive Thank you and well done to all of the dancers from Line ’em Up , Dad ‘N’ Daughter Line Dance and Get In Line Public Group and the dancers and friends that also came along to support and celebrate with us 🎊🥳

We both remember when some of our Get in line members first arrived at our classes, some whom had danced before, others who had only bopped along at a party or two. To see how each and every one of you has progressed and grown in confidence, embraced our style of classes, helped each other (on and off the dancefloor) and continue to come along each week to classes makes us immensely proud 👏👏

Here’s to the next year of fun and dancing!

We talked about socials for a while (longer than I planned) but also we have a quick guide to socials that we wrote some time ago.

We also talked about dancewear and clothing. Please do not rush out and buy a brand new pair of cowboy boots, for a little while at least and if you must, make sure that they are leather soled, not rubber.

I talked about ‘shoe socks’ as being a cheap alternative to wear with rubber soled shoes, please see the image below. There are a number of places that they can be bought but I’ve found Amazon to be quite useful (search ‘shoe socks for dance’ or ‘dance socks’)

Hope you all enjoyed this week, next week (week 5) it is the all important Class information for all the classes in the area and how to find out more about them.
