Launch of new line dancing at Inch hall

13 October 2021

LINGERING lockdown blues were swept aside last week when a new Line Dancing class was launched at Inch Parish Hall just outside Downpatrick.

A large group of ladies and a few gentlemen from a cross-section of the community were present when organiser Lorraine Lennon introduced talented young dance teacher Andrew Robinson from Ballynahinch.

Twenty-one year old Andrew, a member of the highly rated Ballylone Concert Flute Band, admitted to feeling “first night nerves” but his patience and professionalism proved to be well up to the task and the evening was judged a wonderful success.

Mrs Lennon said even though the church hall was not being used because of the Covid-19 restrictions, it still had to be maintained and she felt she could organise a Line Dancing class to bring in much-needed finance to help with the upkeep of the building.

“As well as that, Line Dancing is a great way for people to have an enjoyable, fun night out especially in these autumn and winter months. It’s also a great way to make new friends and you don’t need a partner,” she said.

“Obviously during the Covid lockdown people weren’t able to socialise as they normally could and the Line Dancing class was one way of getting back to some kind of normality.”

Lorraine added: “The class is open to everyone — ladies and gents — and takes place every Friday evening from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. More details are availabe by calling me on 07759 028923 and I will be delighted to hear you.
