A dance, a new dance and new dancers

Seven members of Northampton Scottish Country Dancers attended the Market Harborough dance in September, where we were accompanied not by the usual CDs, but by the superb accordian playing of Ian Slater. Definitely a name to look out for on future dance programmes.

Another new dance made its debut at Northampton. "Northampton Lighthouse", a five couple hornpipe, is inspired by the lift testing tower that dominates the Northampton skyline. The dance proved popular and is sure to make another appearance soon.

And at our latest meeting, we were delighted to welcome no less than three new members - although one of them is technically an old member, having been a member of Northampton Scottish Country Dancers back before some of us even learned to dance.
