The Strictly St Patricks dance competition took place last night, and it was a wonderful success. We had fun, we danced our hearts out, and we managed to do our routine better on the night than in any practice. Thanks to my partner Elisa, our dance-duel opponent/partners Anna and Clemens, and to everyone involved in setting the night up, from the school organisers to the production company.
The after-competition party went on till after dawn and it’s sad that the dancing has now come to an end. I’ve made new friends and learned new skills.
To anyone else out there who gets a chance to do a dancing competition of this type – however much you may fear it, just say “Yes”. It’s been one of the most enjoyable interludes in my life for years.
