NEW FAB Dance Programme For All Bodies, Low Intensity And High On Fun.

Coming to Harburn Village Hall!

FitSteps® For All Bodies, ‘FAB’, is a dance fitness workout designed for people who love to dance, want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons, prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact and perhaps a slower pace. FAB combines old style dance genres such as the Bosa Nova, Foxtrot to the Flamenco and Argentinian tango.

The workout combines sway and swing roots, making it great fun to do whether young or simply young at heart.

The dance steps are easy to follow enabling more participants to have fun getting fit while learning classic dances of the ages.

Come along and give it a try! Saturdays 10am-10:45am

Starting on Saturday 30th November

Only £4 per class

Ceilidh decanted but none the worse for it
They came 'the gither' fae A' the Airts and Pairts -- Cauther, Harburn, Polbeth, Bellsquarry, Edinburgh, all points in between ...  and Aruba.

YES ARUBA!! Such has the fame of Beryl's Halloween Ceilidh spread across the globe in the last twenty nine (29) years that participants now travel from the Caribbean island to participate.

And so it was that a packed Community Centre Hall -- (No!! Not Harburn Hall, this year we were decanted, albeit temporarily, pending the refurbishment and extension of the Hall ... but we will be back next year) -- set to their task.

ceilidh 2019

The music was, as ever, provided on the accordion by the flying fingers of John Morgan. As well as music to dance to John also served up a virtuoso performance of "Duelling Banjos" and other favourites.

The dancers took to the floor in a variety of combinations of age (the not too very old, to the really quite young -- it was grand to see so many young people there) and experience (the very accomplished -- you know who you are Mr & Mrs G / Mr & Mrs B -- to the complete beginner stage) and physical fitness. Ceilidh dancing can be quite demanding if you're not used to it, as many folks found out to their cost as the evening progressed (the phrase "I'm puggled" being heard on an increasing number of occasions).

It was captivating to watch as the dancers displayed a wide range of energetic, enthusiastic, extravagantic and entertaining excellence, together with an impressive range of individual improvisations and interpretations (often simultaneously) of the various reels, two steps, waltzes and polkas.

The much needed refreshment break provided attendees with the opportunity to refuel for the second half of the evening on Beryl's famous traditional fare of home baking, fresh sandwiches, pizza and sausage rolls (all of which were low calorie, low cholesterol and carbohydrate free) all washed down with copious amounts of tea, coffee and Adam’s ale.

A bumper raffle crop administered by Beryl's "arch assistant, Guy, and supported by voluntary donations from the community, was very well received.

In confirming that this evening's event was her 29th and final Ceilidh (could she be persuaded to stay on and do the round 30? -- time will tell) Beryl received a sincere vote of thanks from John Morgan who paid tribute to her great organisational skills whereby he, as our 'resident' musician, never ever had any concerns about accepting a booking to a Harburn 'gig', because he "just knew everything would be in place". The company endorsed his sentiments with a resounding ovation.

Beryl confirmed that the Annual Ceilidh would continue in the hands of another, negotiations are under way. Watch this space for further announcements. The proceeds from the Ceilidh resulted in a donation of £685 to the Hall's Centennial 2023 Renovation Project.

Thank you Beryl.

Allan and Mary
