DAY 2!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it... ... ... The Viennese Waltz!!! Having not done anything resembling "ballroom dancing" since 15 and my school leavers "do". It came as rather a shock to find we were off to The Rialto Dance Studio in Sunny Stoke to learn it from Helen, another Barefoot Doctor!!! To say we giggled with embarrassment is perhaps an understatement... we (I'm using we, as "we" were a group and I don't think any of us escaped!) were taught how to move, how to stand, how to hold, and vaious other things that you get taught in dance class... It was like being back in school. After dance class, back to Newcastle... to "find our space".... which we did, and sat like children on a school trip eating our specially packed lunches, surrounded by pigeons, shoppers and screaming children! This whole day seemed rather like certain memories from my past... From dance classes attended in youth, through to polling people in town which I engaged in during my adolescence... B-Arts Summer School is nothing less than surprising!! It takes you places you would never think possible... :-)
