“Monday 4th February 7:30pm, I walked into the hall for a beginners course for SCD, feeling some trepidation and excitement.

Eight weeks on and I love my Monday nights with a great bunch of fun (and funny) students, and fabulous teachers who are filled with the two “P’s” – Passion and Patience. To teach us lot they require both of those, and they share them with abundance.

The 1 1/2 hr weekly sessions fly by and with my brain sometimes in a whirl I so appreciate the follow up emails we receive each week. These include UTube clips that show the steps that we have learnt and quite often the entire dance that these steps belong to so we have an appreciation of where we’re headed. Being able to slow the UTube clips down to half speed is great (by clicking on the Settings “wheel” bottom right of the screen and clicking Speed – Normal and then clicking on the speed option you prefer), enabling me to follow the steps more closely. Some weeks I get it and some weeks I don’t, but we are all in the same boat and share some laughs!

I look forward to joining the SCD club at the end of our course to carry on with the fun, dancing, learning and making new friends.
