And here is part 2. On the Monday we had signed up for the beginners dance workshop. But we had a few hours to pass before it started...and what can you do in Bath to pass the time while dressed in regency outfit.
Visit the pump rooms to take the waters. Got lots of people ask for photo's someone even thought we were the staff. lol!
|Oh, dear....wonkey buttons|
Have a cream tea. We went to the Bath Bun tearoom. A place discovered on a previous visit which does lovely lunches and cream teas. And I loved how the waitresses just took it as quite normal we were dressed up.
As you can see I was wearing open robe and 'regency turban' for the dancing.
We arrived at the venue for the workshop early but found others there so we had a little chat before doors opened. I joined in almost all of the dances. Despite my usual issues with 'heys' and 'strip the willow' in dances.
My favourites was the 'polonaise' with its funny step, and 'the duke of kents waltz' which I thought was very elegant.
It was a shame we couldn't stay for the 2nd workshop and learn Mr Beveridges Maggot.
I did get a quick video of the dancing though.
