Happy 2017. Many of us were only too happy to wave good bye to 2016 but it was not all bad.
My EXTEND classes celebrated our class members 70-something, 80 something and 90 something birthdays with a special celebratory class and three birthday cakes. EXTEND Exercise was 40 years old which we celebrated with classes, a barn dance and cream tea.
The Queen celebrated her 90th birthday and I was privilaged to be on the Mall with the Sport and Recreation Alliance at the Patons Lunch (in the rain) to celebrate this historic event.
Christmas is a time for family and a well deserved rest and I was in my usual position on New Years day, dancing round the kitchen to the New Years Day concert from Vienna while preparing lunch for the whole family. The dancing continued with the magnificent Red Shoes at Sadler Wells and friends parties. Inspired by ballet and the loss of iconic songwriters and performers I have been upating my play lists creating new motifs and exercises.
With a new year to look forward to EXTEND and Medau are a great way of slipping in your active minutes.
Make 2017 a year to remember and try someting new and different!
Join us on Monday or Tuesday for EXTEND or Wednesday for Medau.
You won't know if it is your 'thing' or not until you give it a go!
