  • the Comical Fellow a longways dance from Thompson 1776. We have a few more dancers this week so can do some longways dances.
  • The Waterfall Waltz a Pat Shaw 1996 dance (adapted for 10 dancers to a longways dance.)
  • Trip to Sheringham a 4 couple dance, danced in square formation.
  • The Drummer, this always feels like a contemporary dance but is in fact from Thompson 1757 but reconstructed in 1992
  • The Rakes of Rochester a longways dance from 1748.
  • Solitaire also a longways dance.

Only three dance sessions this month but lots of lovely dances.

We continue dancing during August so why not come along and join us.
