Angels Dance Squad Autumn 2008

The girls continue to be busy training twice weekly for the United Baton Twirlers Competition in October where 7 teams from around the country will be participating. A number of girls are now 16 years old and this has enabled our trainer Cathy to put together a larger senior team. This year nine girls will be dancing in the senior baton and senior flag teams. This number of participants in the team enables greater scope to develop the complexity of the routines.

However, this will be the first time many of the girls have danced in the senior section and they will be in competition against very experienced baton twirlers. Some girls will also continue to dance in the junior and juvenile sections, taking part in up to 12 routines in total. What a brilliant way to keep fit. I am sure you would like to join with us and wish all 'The Angels' Good Luck in October.

Although our present Angels Team of 25 girls continues to move from strength to strength, we welcome new members. From November we will run a 'skills' night each Thursday for new members, to up-skill in readiness for dancing with the squad. For details please contact Cathy on 01526 323589 / 07920147392 or Maxine 01526 321473.

On a slightly different, but very happy note, all from Angels Dance Squad would like to wish Cathy and Pete all the very best with their new baby due late September. I am sure there will be plenty of very willing 'child minders' at the October Competition.
