Reflections Spring Jamboree

Wow, that was great. Three days of Contra Dancing in an own hall, a total of 13 hours, that makes the contra dancer’s heart beat a little faster. We raised the level a bit and could show what Contra is about and present the vast variety of formations and music. A big thank-you to the hosting clubs for giving us so much room and time in the program. The only downer was the great distance between the dance halls that blocked the dancers from strolling around the halls. Even by bus dancers wasted too much time to sneak-in to the contra hall.

Don’t worry, the next event is coming up and there we will dance contras together again.

Besides all the fun we had with contras Meike Beyen managed her evaluation for ‘Active Prompter’ successfully.

Congratulations and welcome in the bunch of Active ECTA members. We know Meike as is an enthusiastic contra dancer and we are now looking forward to seeing here on stage. She significantly decreased the average age of the active prompters be her joining. We hope she can infect younger dancers by her enthusiasm.

We had a wonderful weekend in Norderstedt and thank the members of the hosting clubs for their effort.
