The Start of the New Season

The start of the new season started yesterday.  We were taught the initial steps of Bampton.  We are dancing this as a single step tradition, with reduced arm movements, trying to recreate a former member’s upright hankies in the flicks.

The steps are Left hop, Right hop, with the flick of the arm and hands on the second hop.

As everyone knows a different bampton (even the dancers in bampton now dance it in several different ways), it will take quite some effort and time before we’re all uniform.

A congratulations goes out to our new Squire Geoff for running the session!
