12 NOON EST - 3:00 pm
What a fun afternoon we had on Saturday with our St. Paddy's Spring Social!  Most everyone was dressed up for the occasion (as displayed in the pictures below), and we shared our Lucky Leprechaun Names with each other.  Some of us made signs to display, others renamed their Zoom name with their Lucky Leprechaun Name!  Thank you to everyone who attended, to make the afternoon such a huge success, and lots of fun!!!  Juliet even had some Irish Whiskey bottles as decoration in her room - 4 or 5 empty bottles (she didn't drink them though).  You had to be there to hear what she said about finding them.  Lots of dancing with a fair amount of celtic tunes for the occasion!!  Everyone danced as much (or little) as they wanted to, and most stayed until the very end.

A huge "THANK YOU" to other instructors who assisted with leading a dance, or assisting with floor splits (of course you can do that virtually! - just PIN the person you want to follow!).  The other instructors - Lindy Bowers, Juliet Hamilton, Martha Davenport, Carole Quirk.  As well, I had a couple of leprechauns in the back of me for good luck!

JINGLE BELL SOCIAL - SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12, 2020 (virtual, of course)

Thank you to all those that joined us for the Jingle Bell Social on Saturday, December 12, 2020.  Lovely to see everyone in their holiday colours and Christmas adornments!  As well, to make it more like Jingle Bell weather, we had a snow storm going on in Sudbury, and had 11 inches by the time it was finished overnight!  Yuck - lots to shovel out!  Getting back to dancing, we danced lots of current dances, as well as oldies and easier ones to Christmas music.  A huge Thank You! to Lindy Bowers, Juliet Hamilton and Carole Quirk, who assisted with leading some dances, as well as a couple of floor splits.  Attendees came from Canada, U.S, and even South Africa!  So glad that everyone enjoyed themselves, and looking forward to the next one in March - date to be confirmed yet.  See the pictures below - some I took and some were sent from Martha Davenport.  Click on each picture in order to enlarge it.
Thank you to all those that joined me at the Spooktacular Social on Saturday, October 31, 2020!!  It was so nice to see everyone get dressed for the occasion!!  We had participants from the U.S., UK, Ontario Canada, and South Africa.  A variety of dances were done in order to ensure that dancers were able to dance for most of the social, without having to sit out.  And of course, it wouldn't be a Spooktacular event without Hallowe'en music!  The majority of dancers remained online through the entire event, so I thank you so much for your participation and attendance.  The work that was done putting it together was worth all the positive feedback.  Have a look at the pictures below to see the costumes, and the participants (although some have their faces hidden behind masks  [and not Covid masks])!  Click on each picture in order to enlarge it.
