Yesterday I threw a birthday party for myself with the help my friends and fellow dancers in New Haven.
I brought an ice cream pie and a bottle of champagne and was surprised with two more bottles of bubbly and a wonderful apple, pear and dried cherry crisp from Leslie Kearney. But best of all was the presence of my friends.
What I programmed was a set of dances that I like and hadn't done in ages.
The dances were:
Pete and Marilynn's Welcome Home (32 J 3) T. Glasspool
Scotland's Gardens (32 R 3) R. Goldring
Glen Feshie (32 S 3) Grampian Collection
Duncan's Jig (32 J 3) D. Ivory
Solway Reel (48 R 4) Carlisle and Border Anniversary
Ythanside (32 S 3) J. Drewry
Carlaverock Castle (32 R 3) P. Price
