Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers

Graham got home from work yesterday to be informed that i had booked us in for a ballroom dancing class for the evening.  He only looked vaguely surprised!

So at half seven we dutifully headed our way down to the the church hall (i seem to be spending half of my life at the mo in the church hall - and i dont even go to church!)

Well i dont think that we have laughed so much in ages.
The quickstep was fine until we needed to turn a corner at which point we collapsed in hysterical laughter and had to move out of the way to let the next couple dance past us.  Second attempt was not much better and several attempts later we decided that the only solution to the problem was going to be finding a dance hall that was very long and thin so we could just keep going in the same direction all evening!

As for the cha-cha it turns out that Graham doesnt have two legs like the rest of the population but in fact has three - or so we guess as he was putting at least one extra step into each iteration of the dance.  By the time we got to the end he was doing at least twice as many steps as everyone else!

Somehow i dont think that Fred and Ginger are going to loose their title as the greatest dance partnership of all time but we had loads of fun and will certainly be going back to the next class - and you never know one day we might just get around that corner!
