A Return to the Studio

This week has been a return to the pre-pandemic scenario of being able to attend several group  dance classes in the week, This has been a still limited return from pre-pandemic conditions in that numbers of dancers in class are limited and of course social distancing / face coverings and the like remain in place and will do so for some time yet (as I suspect the 21st June  date given initially to end social distancing will not be fulfilled especially given the risk with the 'delta' variant as currently seen).   That aside, it was fabulous to be back in the studio after very limited opportunities in the last 6 or 7 months.
