The second phase of yesterday’s activity was of course dancing! It was Wednesday, so whatever else happens, there is always dancing 🙂 this is what makes Wednesdays so good! Yesterday’s practice was no exception, lots of dances (11 or 12) with some walk throughs for our new contingent. lots of excellent fun and activity and I got the opportunity to do the dance I am most scared of (labyrinth) and a very familiar dance in a new place.It turned out that both of those things worked fine, although I am still mildly apprehensive of labyrinth as I always manage to a) clout myself on the head with a stick and 2) get dizzy!
The other thing that I got to do was dance Star of the County Down in a manly way! The video above shows Star of The County Down, and I always miss on a couple of the fast sticky bits…however, last week it was noted that women ad men move their sticks differently (men with their whole arm and women with their wrist) so I decided to try sticking like a man…and it worked…I didn’t miss and sticked and danced the whole dance with considerable enthusiasm! It was much fun!!
All the dances I did last night were:
Maiden Castle, Standing Stones, Triskelle, Broomstick (x2), Avebury Ring, Spank the Monkey, Star of the County Down, Labyrinth, Witch Hunt, Fanny Frail.
In an exceedingly manly way Day 89 Complete 😀

it really is awesome and so much fun 😀 I love it!
I love dancing. Always have. It is a really fun way to exercise and get fit.
it really is, and if you know that at some point you will have to dance in public for people, you have to put so much more effort in 😀
I can only imagine.
it is great fun! and the public thing is not so bad as we wear masks so noone knows who we are 😀
Oh Sam, there is so much material I could jump all over here… Spanking the Monkey…Holding your stick like a man would hold his… Ahh…the mind races with possibilities. 😉
I’ll be nice and just say….GREAT JOB today!
haha…at least I didn’t say holding my stick like a man while spanking the monkey… :-p
next week I can tell you all about the dance called Changeling…nicknamed the Willy Whacking Dance!
Thank You 😀 it was a great day!
I wait with baited breath!
I’ll have to see if I can find a video of it 🙂
