May Line Dance Weekend
Wow! Wow! Wow!
What a weekend, we are exhausted but happy that everything went as smooth as it did.
Even though we had 100 people to look after, Corinne, Mike and Rick still enjoyed themselves enormously.
The staff at The Carrington were so on the ball and couldn't do enough for us. They introduced some new measures for our weekend, such as a separate check in desk, which made check in so much easier, tea and coffee on arrival, new beds and duvets in lots of the rooms, a welcoming Bucks Fizz on the first night, and a new layout in the dining room. A great improvement and still more to be implemented before our next weekend in November, such as new curtains in the rooms and maintenance continuing to oversee all the rooms and get them up to the standard we expect.
Rob (two hats) Fowler was his usual enthusiastic self and played a great variety of music, teaching some good new dances, one that wasn't even down on paper yet, and recapped on a couple of old ones he saw people struggling with. We didn't have a Zumba class after the workshop this time, but instead he taught The Beast, which was not unlike a Zumba class. Thanks Rob.
Steve Lovett and Magill kept the floor full both Friday and Saturday nights with some great songs, but the best parts were played by the dancers, with some new groups who really entered into the spirit of things and had some fabulous outfits.
Saturday night was musicals night and everyone went all out to show off their fancy dress costumes. We had the Pirates of Penzance, all the Nuns from The Sound of Music, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with the oompa loompas, lots of cabaret outfits and many more. The winner, chosen by Rob, Derek and Dave from Magill were Willy Wonka, The Captain from the Pirates and the Bishop, all received a bottle of wine and a voucher off our next weekend.
We are all looking forward to 7th to 9th November with Tina Argyle, Glenn Rogers and Lass Vegas, so if you haven’t booked your place then so it quick as we are getting booked up fast.
See you on the dance floor!
Corinne, Mike and Rick
