Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...
Whenever a month has a fifth Friday in it, Trisha and Deej of Strictly Salsa http://www.strictlysalsa.co.uk/ run a social at their Wetherby venue. This time, they gave an opportunity to the new line up of a band many local salseros hold dear and around 120 of us turned up to support them. It was their first gig since the band re-formed, a practice really, and they were understandably nervous but gave a very creditable performance. We’re all looking forward to seeing them perform again on 13th September, just round the corner at the famous Wetherby Engine Shed.
Salsa steps are complicated enough without allowing alcohol into the frame, so the glasses on the table contained only J20 (orange and passion fruit). All the same, the mood was buoyant when our friend Andi came round with her camera.
That said, holding tightly onto Jack – and at least another dozen of our great leaders during the evening – was a pleasure, not a necessity. Viva la salsa!
