German students – dancing in Penlee Park!

We had a lovely session on Sunday, hosting German students who were in Penzance to practise their English! Fortunately the weather was wonderful as there were too many to fit into the Coach House, so we danced outside, helped by Renate who translated (the ladies’ moving on bit in Newlyn Reel would have been tricky however good the students’ English was!!). First a serpent dance, then Mr Martin’s Reel, Tregajorran Furry, Newlyn Reel, and a serpent dance to finish. They all joined in despite a slight hesitancy from the lads to start with. Such fun!

We still managed to practise for next Saturday’s Lafrowda Festival after the students had gone; catch us at 1pm on the Shindig Stage!
