It was lovely to welcome Louise Siddons back to Camden FDC; and a wonderful surprise to have Mollie Koenigsberger on her fiddle.
As expected, Louise's teaching was clear, friendly and good-humoured; and Mollie's playing was a joy for both dancers and observers. The programme was a well-judged mix of 18th-century and modern dances. We look forward to Louise's next session.

Brenda and Mollie attracted a good crowd to the club and it was very nice to see Elizabeth B., Paul and Jacky again. We were delighted to welcome Deirdre and Sue and hope they'll become regular visitors to the club.
It was such a joy to dance to live music and Mollie was on wonderful form. (Lots of members said how much they miss the live music we enjoyed.) People enjoyed Brenda's programme, which included: Levi Jackson, Shrewsbury Lasses, Kelsterne Gardens, Mr Isaac and Philippe Callens' Westward Bound. And were very glad to see her again. She said she'll come and call again!
