New term of music and dance sessions

Posted: September 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

The summer holidays always seem to be a much welcome break when they first start, but by the fourth week or so, I really miss the regular session and workshops and the social side of seeing the participants (for that, read Friends/fellow musicians/fellow dancers) that come along to the sessions and classes that I run.


So, it’s with relief and pleasure that I look forward to the start of the new term this week.

Today (Tuesday) is the first Back In The Saddle Band session at the Bishop Grosseteste University College Chapel (just off the main reception on Newport, Lincoln) at 7.30 – 9pm. This is a band that I run with the intention of providing a place for people to come together to make music, no matter what their instrument, or experience level. Dot readers, ear learners, lapsed musicians with dusty instruments, younger musicians who have passed beyond the realms of the county bands and orchestras, self taught players who want to experience playing with others, beginners both young and old and more experienced players who want to keep their lip or fingers in or who want to ‘give something back’ and inspire less experienced players.


Wednesday is the first session of this new term of the long running Medieval dance group at Holbeach St Marks Community Gym, Sluice Road, Holbeach St Marks – supported by Lincolnshire Dance’s Dance4Life Project (7pm – 8.30pm). Having a good laugh and a natter whilst incidentally learning social dances from the 14th to 17th Centuries (yes, I know that’s not Medieval – it kind of evolved past that…) what could be a better release from the stresses of the daily grind..

I’ve really missed it all and cant wait to get stuck in 🙂
