The Sunday Class Most Popular Dances 2015-16  (East Midlands)
This is the 7 th  year that I have been collating data from Social Dance programmes in the East Midlands area. For these purposes the year starts on July 1 st  and most of the Dances I have attended (though occasionally a clash occurs but both programmes are included). This year I have included Cambridge (3), Corby (2), Coventry Thistle Club (events in Wolston) (8), Huntingdon (1), Leicester (7), Lincoln (1), Market Harborough (3), Newark (3), Nottingham (4), Peterborough (9), Sleaford (1), Stamford (2), The Sunday Class Annual Dance & St. Andrew’s Dance, Waltham (2), and the programmes from Chiclana de la Frontera (Spain). I also went to the Wing Day School & Dance (12 piece band led by Jim Lindsay with Ian Robertson - highly recommended!) and also the Bedford Ball (an outstanding evening), but have not included them here as they are really ‘out of area’.
