Tamar DA’ers go Swinging

Tamar DA’ers go Swinging

Well, this weekend is a little tough to describe?

There were sheep…..there were sheep dropping…..there was sunshine…..there was a view to die for…..there were swing lessons…..there was falling down juice…..and then there was John Lloyd-Davies.  Mmmm…..

dancing1Our stewards, Sarah & Dave Bunt put on a weekend to remember for us Tamar DA’ers.  Mt Edgecumbe provided the idyllic setting for weekend of Swing.  That’s right…..Sarah & Dave organised professional swing dancers to come along and help teach us how to Jive.  The pros arrived and what must they of thought!

First on was our warm-up act, John “wedding shoes” Lloyd-Davies.  He was in fine form, albeit a little wobbly I feel.  Then came the pros Duncan & Louise from ‘Mad About Swing’.  The soon got us all up jiving and swinging to the beat, despite the majority of us certainly being classed as beginners.  After a gruelling teaching session (after which most need much refreshment), a master-class was provided by Duncan & Louise.  Darn, they made it look easy!  To follow, was some more dodgy dancing from JLD and then a elegant display of what our members can really do by Joy Rendle.

To finish the evening, a myriad of alternative dancing took place.  Check out the photos for some ‘not so elegant’ members taking to the dance floor 🙂

29 units enjoyed a stunning weekend, many thanks to to our stewards for their hard work and very enjoyable Swing excerpt.

Duncan & Louise welcome beginners and experts alike at their weekly swing lessons, if you’re keen to swing again.  They can be contacted at
