Soroptomists Fund Raising Event

ted-ceilidh-bandRainbow had a fun evening out on Tuesday September 20th as we joined the Keighley Soropomists at Keighley Rugby Union Football Club in Utley.

We put on a lively and colourful show along with the delightful Dance 21 group. There was music from the talented Spinning Jell, joined for some of the time by our very own musicians Terry and Ted, and we had fun joining in a couple of ceilidh dances too.

All proceeds went to Dementia Care and a local Downs Syndrome support group.

400 Roses Day of Dance at Saltaire Festival, Saturday 10 September
Five dancers and our musicians had a lovely, relaxed and sunny afternoon at the first weekend of Saltaire Festival as guests of 400 Roses day of dance. This weekend is becoming a bigger part of the festival with more events and therefore more visitors. We danced around the village along with Roll Back the Carpet, The Hillmilles, Oakworth Morris Men, Ripon City Morris Men and 400 Roses, finishing the day with a showcase and a mass Princess Royal at the band stand in Roberts Park followed by tea and cakes at Caroline St social club.

Settle Festival – Saturday, 3 September

Although we had been looking forward to dancing in Settle again this year, unfortunately we had to cancel due to holidays, illness etc.  We hope the event was once again a great success and we do hope we’re invited again next year.

Dancing at the opening of Floral Dance

Friday, 2 September

 We were delighted to be part of the Grand Opening of Floral Dance, a beautiful florist shop in Ben Rhydding.  Owner Angela had worked throughout the night before (almost) to ensure that all was ready for the shop’s first day of trading.  She made us very welcome and with additional fresh flowers in our hats to mark the occasion, we enjoyed dancing outside Floral Dance.  We taught a simple dance to the audience, some of whom, including several young children, really enjoyed performing it.

Our best wishes to Angela – we hope her new venture is a great success.
