Medal Presentation Goes With a Bang Bang!

The end of January usually brings our medal presentation dance following our NATD exam day last December and this year was no exception.IMG_1568

It is great to see how dancing brings together people of all ages, from 2 years to over 80 years, to enjoy a social afternoon. There were some delicious cakes available, made by the FroGS together with a mix of ballroom, Latin, sequence and line dancing hopefully to suit all tastes.

One of the highlights of the afternoon is the display provided by the children and young adults. First to perform were the younger children, Grace, Emily R and Fearn, partnered by some of the older children, who showed us their Paso Doble and Jive. Then followed a routine by the older ones with a demonstration of Quickstep, Tango, Gavotte, Waltz, Viennese Waltz and Two Step all choreographed to music from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. They all performed brilliantly especially since it was a challenging routine and they had barely had more than five hours of rehearsals in which to learn it!

We have a very short break now before we launch full steam into the competition season with three events in quick succession commencing on February 14th and culminating in our own competition on March 6th. Make sure you don’t miss out.

One thought on “Medal Presentation Goes With a Bang Bang!”

  1. Thought it was a great event. Loved the demonstration dances and thought those Fred and Ginger biscuits should have featured in the Great British Bake Off!
