Cornish Dancing in Bude!

What a wonderful group to work with up in Bude as part of the #coast2coast #cornishdance project.

Eight joint 'playing for dancing' #cornishmusic and 'dancing for fun' #cornishdance sessions, with growing confidence and lots of laughter from all participants on the way 😂.

HUGE THANKS 🙌 to Mike and Chris Jurkiewicz, Bude Folk Club and Bude Folk Festival for having the faith,  the Falcon Hotel for the space and copious amounts of tea, coffee and apple juice, and to all of you for joining us when you could!

We were so sorry not to have made the final session, or the festival this year . . . extra special thanks to Kate and John for stepping in for us!

And an extra round of applause 🙌 to Kate for taking the dances straight from the workshops to her year 5 students from the very first session, AND hosting an AWESOME short-notice workshop for the Bude Beavers with her son!!

Methinks Bude has become quite self-sufficient.  Sticks, steps, and maybe even barrels in the follow-up series 💃🎻!

A few of us had the chance to have a go at a new card game in Cornish with Cornish language teacher, Jerry after one of the sessions, and learn a few words associated with #cornishdance!

I'd love to master calling dances in Cornish by the end of 2017!  Wonder if there's anywhere in Liskeard to learn . . . ?

Here's a few of the pics taken by the marvellous Bob Griggs at one of the sessions, and the great Six Hand Reel set too.

See youse at the Esedhvos Troyl with Scoot Lyskerrys in Lanson on Friday 1st September!

Oll an gwella!
All the best!
