The Gatwick gathering

The mystery can be cleared up. There is a lonely Scottish dancer who finds himself obliged to spend several long hours between flights in Gatwick airport. Since it is a large place with plenty of space, he thought it would be a good opportunity to meet some of the hundreds of dancers in the Sussex-Surrey area, have a bit of fun and some exercise, too. No, there's no Gatwick branch, no secretary (with mascara or without), and for the moment, not many willing dancers. But I'll be there ! Martin, packing his bags in Grenoble, France.

Martin, quite a good start for a thread on dances for ........ a half-couple. William P.S. There would be certain pre-requisites, like a) make sure everybody knows which end of Gatwick (North or South) b) make sure the airport security people are informed beforehand, otherwise you may be arrested c) remember to take your ghetto-blaster and a few CDs d) since you like dancing in your bare-feet remember that unattended baggage (your shoes) "may be removed and destroyed" as the tannoy never ceases to remind us e) remember not to wear a 'skean dhu' however you spell it f) alert the local press g) and finally if you fear a lack of spectators announce that you will be maintaining Scottish traditional clothing standards
