... with Bob Minney ,Paul Boizot + Jo Denham playing for us all w/end .


 Mostly we dance at the top of the village in the spacious  Fylingthorpe Village Hall ( in the top car park in Robin Hood's Bay ) but tides + weather willing we have one short session on the nearest beach - last few years that has been Sunday am . This w/end is for experienced dancers + we dance lots of dances ! Usually we have a themed session - like Bulgarian/Greek / Flowing etc + sometimes on Saturday night some dances towards the end of the session are danced for longer - 8- 10mins or so . There is a mix of traditional dances + recent ones -  and some from Bob's or Paul's repotoire. There will be some lively dances and some more complicated , as well as slow and trance like . Sometimes there is a short extra session for singers to practise one or two songs to be sung later that evening for the dancers.

Start Friday night 8pm -10pm.Saturday 10am- 10pm with afternoon break!. Dance on the beach if we can or Sunday am.. Dancing after tea Saturday   till 10pmish.Sunday 10am - 3pm.

Others including me + the band stay at The Old School House down nearer the sea. Its cheap + cheerful - bunk beds with veggie or full English breakfast.
