Dance Umbrella

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Bath and North East Somerset hold a dance festival every year, aimed primarily at schools, though there are also some dance clubs taking part.  This year’s event happened on Wednesday evening this week.  As a chair of governors I get invited along and I always try to make it.  It’s a fun evening, even if my own kids haven’t taken part for some years.

If nothing else, the excitement and enthusiasm of the children taking part is amazing.

This year’s best dances, IMHO, were Widcombe Infants and both the Newbridge Primary offerings (though I guess I’m biased in choosing the latter).  Whatever, the Newbridge upper-school dance looked to me to be one of the most well rehearsed and together dances of the night.

Well done to all concerned.

Sara and I went out for a meal afterwards to Yak Yeti Yak, a Nepalese restaurant in Bath.  Lovely food and not bad prices either.  The dahl and watercress and spinach curry were both especially good.
