Had our final class and end of year celebration with the adult class last night. My photos were terrible because the lighting was weird so I don’t have much to show until I get some from other class members, but I presented all the ladies with a memento brooch shaped like a teapot, we sang songs and did ceili dances, and they showed their loved ones the dances they have learned this year as well as some videos from the bits and pieces we’ve done over the course of the year. I was really pleasantly surprised to find that I was quite good at calling the ceili dances without demonstrating myself, and the ladies’ partners and parents caught on to most of them relatively well. My dancers also gifted me a huge bag of T Bar teas and a beautiful green cup - they clearly have got to know me very well this year :) Half the class are disappointed about stopping for Christmas holidays and pestering me to keep teaching them more things, which is amazing, but also a little stressful as I do need a break from hall hire and some time to knuckle down on my PhD! I am so happy to have such an enthusiastic adult class and can only hope they all recruit a friend next year.
