It has to be said that Cinderella may have made it to the ball...but it will NEVER be said that I can dance. The members of Fort Nisqually Living History Museum welcomed us as family, "Silkie on the Sound" were wonderful, Karen tried SO hard to call the dances and help me out, the other dancers bobbed and weaved as I turned left instead of right.... up instead of down and singlehandedly created total havoc and confusion on the dance floor. My theory is...I'm so busy working out what the next step is, I forget what I am doing.. but I had so much fun.
The Fort Nisqually family were so kind...I don't think I broke any toes and I think I know that we had a night to remember from the moment we entered the hall. Every era was represented from Regency to the swinging 20's, beautiful gowns, vivid colors, period dances and the magical music of Silkie on the Sound. Yes, it was a challenge....but it WAS SO WORTH IT !! incidentally.....I did make the transformation in 30 minutes (ish).
Take care, keep safe, M
