2020 will be remembered as one of the most difficult and challenging year’s for everyone.
It started well with our usual round of qualifying events at Kettering,
Castleford and West Park and we also had a fabulous turnout for our own competition in March. The Medal Presentation dance was also a highlight with some excellent performances by our younger dancers. Little did we know what was around the corner and all of that now seems a lifetime ago.
At the end of March of course, like everyone else we entered lockdown and were not able to open for four months. Nevertheless, some of you managed to enjoy dancing in different ways through our videos and Zoom (who knew what that was before March?)
Fortunately we were able to open again in July, almost to the day when we officially opened our new studio only a year before. It was great to see so many of you return and although things were different, everyone adapted really well especially those of you who have had to get used to dancing solo, which is no easy task, and you will no doubt be better dancers for the experience.
We would like to thank you all for the dedication, resiliance and loyalty you have shown throughout this period and we hope that we will be able to gradually return to some form of normality in the New Year.
Of course Boris won’t be able to visit Bearmuda during the break but will be enjoying a quiet Christmas at home this year.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year. Let’s hope 2021 turns out to be an improvement on this year!
Robert, Louise and Boris
