Last class of the term! Food, dancing and photos abound!
All three teachers taught (say that 50 times fast) and everyone came out unscathed. Most dances were in preparation for the Hogmanay on Dec.29th.
It’s Nae Bother 32J2 Carnforth Coll D. Haynes
Shiftin’ Bobbins 32R3 Ormskirk 6 R. Clowes
Gentle Shepherd 32J3 RSCDS Book 17
Castle Douglas 32S3 12 Social Dances Goldring
Dancing Dolphins 32J3 Dolphin Book B. Skelton (there’s a dolphin book??)
And last but not easiest, we have Dagmar’s dances:
Tomalena 32R5 San Francisco Vol.2 Gratiot&Douglas
Most importantly though, we ended dance early to have a PARTY! Enjoy these fun photos!
THE FOOD (and not just cookies either, some people actually cooked – kudos to Michael’s pies and thanks to Dagmar for probably bringing half the table). Also, olives are gross, they are totally ruining this picture for me.
Margaret and Holly! It is legend that it is impossible to get a picture of all three teachers together. This was confirmed this evening. If anyone has photographic evidence proving otherwise, I promise to dance a Strathspey unironically. You know, someday.
Exhibit A Dagmar and Ramona looking lovely
Exhibit B Margaret and Ramona looking lovely. Maybe one day they will all look lovely together! (preferably with two Ramonas, that would be cool).
Remember that game, “spot the 7 differences between the photos”? Well, let’s see if you can spot at least one here. This is me and Katie trying to be the same height. I had fun, but Katie might’ve broken something. I also felt a strange presence at one point, but it must’ve been my imagination.
Anne dearly wanted to be the tallest in the photo, but Don didn’t let her.
There you go, Anne! Check out Michael’s outfit, Ali’s snappy vest and Holly’s “Noel” brooch!
Duncan, myself, Guillaume hair, and half a Margaret head. Add 2 cups of butter and stir.
We all look slightly tipsy here, which is interesting since there was no alcohol.
Duncan and Michael fight over who’s going to write in Holly’s card first while Nadia and Olga discuss plans for world domination by the fashionable.
Don gives Alistair important life lessons about how to wear wine-coloured sweaters.
Mingling and chatting over food…
Last but not least….our beautiful class picture!!! Sorry to have missed you, Holly, but apparently you just don’t know how to time bathroom breaks like I do.
See you at Hogmanay on the 29th, and remember we return on January 10!
