Half Past Nothing Teach and Demo by our Teacher!

Hello!

No one will be surprised to learn that COVID has had our team out of practice time and space as we all sheltered at home.   A few of us are now practicing in our teacher’s driveway, and we are very much looking forward to seeing you at an event in the not so distant future and dancing for you!

Here’s the teach and demo by Pat of Half Past Nothing!

For those of you not on the team, enjoy, give it a try, and next time we see you at an event, you can join us on the dance floor after our demo!

Hello friends,

It’s taken a few weeks as I think we were all hopeful that we’d see you sooner than later!

Like so much of the world, we dancers are staying home to protect our families, friends and neighbors.

We are practicing and have great plans to share our new dances with you sometime this year!

Stay well!

The Big E and the end of the 2019 Fair season for us! But we’re not done with 2019 yet!

The Big E — it’s BIG!    Take one look at the photo on this page, and you have just a little taste of the size of this place and the thousands that attend it!

They had their largest attendance ever –  1, 639,527 people!  What does that mean for us?  We are thrilled to be invited and to dance at such an event.   We always do our demo in the New England Center, where you’ll find the home of the 4-H,    as well as the most amazing pieces of handwork and quilts!

We did really well, the weather was a perfect late summer day, and we had a pretty decent sized audience, with a couple of toddlers who are always happy to bounce along to the music with us!

A little blurry, but you get a sense of how fast our feet do go sometimes!

 

 

 

We generally go down a little early and enjoy the Fair ourselves – we take in some of the sights such as the famous butter sculpture, eat some fair food (baked potatoes and tater tots are some of the favorites), and maybe even get a little life advice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re not done with 2019 yet though!!   Stay tuned for more as we switch to our Holiday programming – learning new dances to holiday music and entertaining at several of our local Senior Housing Centers in the month of December!

 

Happy Fall!
