Louise Siddons called and taught an interesting programme of old and more recent dances in the English tradition this evening. She had just completed the walk-through of the first dance when a party of around 20 students arrived, most of whom had never before attempted English Country Dance. She handled the influx with aplomb and, by asking the more experienced participants to dance with the new people, ensured a good experience for all.
She returns to Camden again next week.
I thought last night went really well. ... the dances were great and it was so good to see Dave.
It was very nice to have Dave back and to have such a large group to welcome him.
