Thurso come Dancing members are going from strength to strength and doing well increasing their levels of dancing that have been recognised in the awards received at recent tests. 10 members travelled to Lossiemouth to be tested and one member was tested on a video.

11 of class members took the tests. One couple took Bronze in Ballroom and Latin and excelled in their results, gaining Honours and Distinction which is the highest you can be marked. Four members took Bronze in Rock and Roll which is a new dance for our group and our marks ranged from Highly Commended to Distinction.

Eight Members took Silver in Ballroom and marks ranged from Commended to Distinction.
Seven Members took Silver in Latin American and marks ranged from Commended to Honours.
10 of us travelled to Lossiemouth to be tested and one member was tested on a video.

The group attended a social dance in the evening along with all the members of Caroline Coombers Dance School.

We also attended workshops on the Sunday, in Tango and Samba which were taken by the examiner Su Cooper and one of her teachers David Pollard, who travelled up from Oxford to test everyone.

The classes in Thurso are now changing to accommodate the increasing numbers.

7 pm to 8 pm New beginners - Basics steps in Waltz, Quickstep, Cha Cha, and Jive. Introduction to Rock n Roll and some sequence dances in Tango and Foxtrot (present class members welcome to still attend at this time to re-learn your basics, while concentrating on tightening up technique.)
