Hello everyone, been a while since the last update but August is generally our ‘holiday’ month. It was a shame we were not involved in Hull Folk Festival this year but we’re hoping to be involved in the future, and there’s a possibility we might hold a workshop at Fruit at some point. We’ve also just joined Twitter, so do spread the word and follow us @GGGDancers … This week we’re practising for Lincoln BIG Festival on Saturday, it’s our AGM on Sep 12, and in the following four weeks (Sep 19 & 26, Oct 3 & 10), we’ll be tailoring our sessions to beginners, so please come along!
Green Ginger Garland would like to wish everyone a very happy new year, and many thanks to all who have turned out at the various events we performed at during 2012. Please check the updated 2013 diary for details of events we’re due to be at in the coming months, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to join us, or book us for your event.
It was nice to meet up with the ladies from Beverley Garland recently; they came down to our practice hall in Cottingham, where we taught them Whitby Shindig, the dance with bobbins originally created by Val Marsden.
The Beverley team did really well in picking up the figures so quickly, and it’s fair to say that both teams were put through their paces in one of the most energetic sessions for some time.
It was also a good opportunity to socialise, and we look forward to dancing Whitby Shindig together as a double header when the teams meet on the Wold Tour 2012, which is provisionally set to take place on Saturday, July 14.
