However (as in our case) what do you do if you have 8-10 regulars and (on a good day) 2 beginners? If I were ever in the situation of having 6-8 beginners with whom I could do a separate class, it would be like having my Birthday on the 25th December. Alan P.S. Having received today my Scottish Country Dancer magazine I now know what Andrea looks like. Aha! Chris Ronald as well. Isn't it odd how one makes pictures of people with whom one corresponds - and these are totally wrong?
