With further lifting of restrictions on the horizon and the idea of everyone meeting as a group again soon to be a reality, the Worthing Larks have been practicing very hard to prepare ourselves for our first dance out of the year, for which planning is underway. Today we had two practice sessions of 6 led by the Squire, as the Foreman was otherwise engaged, both of which focused on Bunch of Fives (Roundhill Border) and Betty Windsor (Adderbury Cotswold), along with South Australia (Adelaide) for the first group. The Squire was very happy with the enthusiasm of the Side and especially our younger members who were very keen to learn, with one young lady in particular learning the entire dance of Betty Windsor from scratch and dancing it to a good standard in under an hour! Well done!! When we are able to dance together as a group I am sure she will be proud to show off her newly-learned skills and we will all be equally proud to watch. Our younger members, once a Junior side of their own as the Sompting Morris Minors, have integrated successfully into Worthing Larks and are proving to be an asset; one we are sure will do a wonderful job of helping us carry on Morris traditions for another generation.
