Day 152: dancing myself dizzy

ok…that is not strictly speaking true, I was dizzy in the day so the fact that I was dizzy while dancing was not a massive surprise.

Because if this, and the fact that we taught a lot of dances to the new people meant I did not do as many dances as in recent weeks, this is not a bad thing mind you! Teaching dances to new people (especially over the winter) is a very important part of practice after all, I am still new enough to not know all of the dances yet so still need teaching myself. As well as that, the teaching and walking through part means I get the opportunity to try dances in new positions which is excellent πŸ™‚ It also means I got to take some pictures πŸ™‚

thors hammer
Thors Hammer (i didn’t take this one…)

this one is of the ance known as Thor’s hammer, which is generally considered to be our rain dance, dedicated to the God Thor, it brings on Thunderstorms, and rain and all sorts! however we thought it would be fairly safe to do inside πŸ™‚ I am in that pic ( nearest the camera with wiggly hair!)

there was a great deal of violent stick clashing and general merriment in our henry which I have to say is an awesome dance, I love doing it, now I even know it in more than one place πŸ˜€

there was even a small amount of levitation in a dance called Herne’s Oak (I think). All in all it was an excellent practice, I even danced labyrinth…which didn’t help the dizziness, but it was fun!

the dances I did this week were:

Maiden Castle, Our Henry, End of the World (x2), Thor’s Hammer (x2), Foul Mouthed Cat, Labyrinth and Fanny Frail.
