We didn’t have much time for dancing since it was the AGM of the club on Monday night but we managed four dances in the hour we had.
We danced a couple of the dancers from the New Dancers’ Celebration. These were Catch the Wind and The Hunting Horn, both popular dances on many programs. We also learned Triple Happiness.
This is a 3 couple strathspey from the latest RSCDS book. It has a corner pass and turn formation with a slight variation in that the corners turn with two hands rather than one. This dance is on both Wanganui’s dance program at the end of September and Carterton’s dance program in early November.
You can see this danced in Japanese style at https://youtu.be/9CcluxqFxdk.
We then finished off by dancing Shiftin’ Bobbins another popular dance.
