Dance Ceroc News – October 2013
UPDATE - Ann's Retirement Party
Friday was a wonderful night that I am unlikely to ever forget. A HUGE thank you to everyone who managed to come on Friday for your kind words, cards and presents. My house is full of flowers. Thank you very much.
MASSIVE thanks also to everyone who got in touch with kind words, emails, phone calls, cards and presents. I can't tell you what it means to me.
I know it was late notice so sincere apologies to those who wanted to come but couldn't make it and, given that I certainly didn't manage to dance with everyone I would have liked to - too busy talking - so I have put you on my dance card for next time we meet on a dance floor.
FRIDAY FREESTYLE ... and ... Ann's Retirement Party
Well it seems that you can't keep anything quiet these days. I had barely got off the stage at the Ritz last night to announce my retirement from Ceroc before there were messages on my mobile wishing me a happy retirement!
Yes, it's true. Yes, I am old enough. Yes, I am going to miss you all terribly. Yes, I am going to miss being on the desk on Tuesday nights and dancing with you all. And, No, I haven't a clue what I am going to do with myself now - Anything I want to I suppose.
This Friday, 11 October, is my last Ceroc event. I'm sorry to be going, but the recession has finally caught up with me and I can no longer afford to keep the business going so I'm taking the opportunity to retire. So, if you can, please come and say goodbye to me and all the wonderful Ceroc crew who can make it. Unfortunately Chris U can't be with us as he is giving it his best down at the Ceroc weekender at Brean, but you can catch up with him at Ceroc in Leeds where he is also a regular DJ. So on Friday we have the fabulous Al on the decks and I'm sure he will be planning his play list as we speak.
Doors open at 8.00 and dancing to midnight.
£8.00 on the door - Everyone welcome - I would love to do it for free but sorry, I can't afford to.
Ritz Ballroom, Bradford Road, Brighouse, HD6 4AD
There are so many people to thank for their help and support over the last 13 glorious years - Ann (on the desk), teachers, DJ's, demo's, taxi's, all the dancers, other dance organisers - and last, but certainly not least, my lovely Rob (who will be there on Friday so I can dance with you all) - I could not have done this without you. I always become terrified at this point that I have missed someone, if I have I'm sorry, but I know I will remember you as soon as I have sent this. Don't be surprised if I drop out the dance scene for a little while, I just need to re-charge my batteries, but dancing has always been such a big part of my life, I'll be back.
Ann and all the Ceroc Crew
