The 128some Reel (to be undertaken on the night)
Having at last found a venue big enough to make it possible, we will be undertaking an ambitious 128some reel at the Reel Thing Ball in Hammersmith Town Hall on Nov 18th, 2016. This should be quite a spectacle, and has never been undertaken before south of the border. The dance is based on the Eightsome Reel and is NOT difficult, as you will see from the 3 minute tutorial video below. It promises to be as much FUN as it is huge!
If you'd like to sign up to participate in this dance on the night, complete the form below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Phew! We did it :-)
Our attempt at the 32some at London Reels on Tuesday. No walkthrough, just some guidelines on a Google spreadsheet circulated to all. A triumph!
New improved versions of last year's reeling videos, this time with clearer labelling. Hope these won't need to be changed or updated for at least 20 years! :-)
Raised £3000 for the charity - great fun all round!
