Or maybe not a plug.
lark_ascending has created camdancewithme for "ballroom, Latin, ceilidh and other dancers in Cambridge, UK, especially CDC members, to organise meetups. Talent not necessary, beginners and owners of two left feet welcome!" As I seem to have a fair few CDC people lurking on my friends list that she doesn't know about ;-) I thought it was worth mentioning it here...
Not sure I like the phrasing "to organise meetups" though. I mean, it's not like we're about to take over the organising of GD or the Round ceilidhs. And it's not like any event will be improved by a large prescence of LJ people. I mean, you're all lovely, but so are the non-LJ CDC/Round people. I think I'd have just as good a time with non-LJ dancers as with LJ dancers. The idea of a clique within a clique doesn't appeal either - I mean, there are already lots of CDC classes, and things like GD, and trips to the pub etc. It's bad enough that we have the committee clique, let along an LJ one :-p
And I think it's charmingly naive to assume that the folkies and dancesport types will all sit happilly together in the same community. You'd like to think they'd be united by common interest, but I never fail to be amazed how wide the gulf between the folk scene and the ballroom scene is in Cambridge. Still, I suppose it's because if you take scots, and molly, and the round, you don't have any free time to go to ballroom classes!
All that aside, it seems a nice idea to have somewhere to plug dancing events in Cambridge, especially if I means I notice some of the stranger and more unusual stuff I wouldn't otherwise be aware of. And if it gets me off my lazy arse and drags me out to GD that wouldn't be a bad thing either :-)
