Rehearsals start for Zion does Strictly!
Sunday 28th January. It was a nervous bunch that gathered in the Zion Parish Hall tonight for the very first Zion does Strictly dancing lesson. Our dancetastics are a motley crew of past and present school parents and teachers, friends, and friends of friends, clergy, scout leaders and other fantastic folk with a twinkle toes (or a twisted arm…!)
The school’s (almost resident) photographer, Ros Kavanagh, lined us up for a quick group photo that broke the ice and got us going. Then dance master Tom Whelan clicked his heels and our 10-week programme to dance greatness began.
Two hours later, in a flash of a step-ball-change, we were done and committing to a three-hour session the next Sunday. It was great fun. Completely and utterly knackering. But exhilarating. Zion does Strictly has begun.
