Marje doing Playford right (18) RE: doing Playford right 03 May 16


We were once dancing in a set of EFDASS dancers who favoured the Playford Plod style. We were not expert dancers but we liked to bounce around with a bit of energy. One couple actually complained that our dancing was "too tense", and that we should relax and dance with less energy and pace - they couldn't cope with people whose feet actually left the floor sometimes.

I have also danced with RSCDS dancers, who have a different set of preoccupations: I was just about managing to get the footwork right, and learning to do a few dances without a caller, but then I was asked to try to keep my arms closer to my sides, in case my loosely swinging limbs bumped into anyone else during the dance.
