About the group

The new restrictions – rule of six, with no exemption for indoor sport – has made line dancing, at the Buckingham, Youth Centre, unviable – so it is with regret that Pip & I are cancelling the planned Monday and Wednesday groups, at least until 2021.

Pip will be taking a break from dancing but I intend to start a ZOOM class again on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays  2-3:30pm. Several of us did keep our motivation up during the first lockdown by meeting on Zoom. We found that it was possible to share some chat and the music, so that we could all attempt the same dance! As long you you had some space and the ability to Zoom it didn’t matter if you went wrong as you weren’t putting anyone else off. Although the lead dancer explained the dance, and demonstrated it, we did find that it was difficult to learn if you didn’t know the terms for some of the steps so it is not really suitable for new dancers. If you are interested please contact me, Joanne Thompson.

Beginners Group (Jo Thompson)

Several changes have occurred in the line-dancing format due to Gina moving on to other hobbies. Wednesday will continue to be beginner / absolute beginner dances but will be undertaken in 3-month terms so that some enthusiastic dancers can then move on to Improvers, if they wish, and we can form a “Covid Bubble” of a maximum of 20 dancers each term. The risk assessment for Buckingham Youth Centre is available on their website and I can supply the risk assessment specific for line-dancing should you wish to consider joining.

Improvers group (Pip Large)

I am Pip Large and from October 2020 will be taking over the improvers line dancing group which started in 2016 under Gina Crouch.

We will be learning and enjoying a mix of line dances, from high beginner to improver / intermediate level, which I hope will offer all those of you who have line danced in the past, or more recently, to continue enjoying all the benefits that dancing brings.
