A fabulous 2021 Dance Festival

 

We made It!

Months of ‘Can we’ ‘should we’ ‘will we’ discussions about safety, procedure and security finally culminated in a glorious explosion of Dance. As organisers we were all delighted to be physically working together in a team instead of the last 18 months of online interaction. The joy permeated every aspect of the weekend with dancers just happy to be performing again and parents frequently coming into the office to express their thanks for a festival taking place.

We lost a few performers due to injury and the shortage of fuel that weekend made some families who lived at a distance frightened to use their remaining fuel in case they wouldn’t have enough for work but those that were there more than made up for that. They gave of their absolute best and the quality of the performances was noted by Geoff Lucas, our adjudicator with a number coming in for high praise.

Writhlington School were most supportive and accommodating of our needs and we feel very lucky to be able to use such excellent facilities.

Roll on 2022
