Dear Dancers

Friday 5 Rhythms in Bristol 
Horfield Parish Church Hall, Fridays 8:30 – 10:30pm
This week (April 21): Jean Rankin

This Friday our great friend Jean Rankin will be taking the class, bringing her playful irreverence, that can sometimes belie the depth of her work. 

“I can get quite amazed at how colourful and vibrant I can begin to feel, pretty quickly, when I start to dance. Something in the movement itself, combined with the music and good company . . it doesn’t matter how cold and grey and windy it is out there, there is a natural tendency to feel uplifted by the dance.”** 

I always feel uplifted by dancing with Jean – so come and dance…
Usual time, usual place 🙂

See you on the dance floors

All Love,
Jon, for Bernadette, our guests & the team xxx
