We have now started our own amateur dance group called Ashnah. We meet weekly for rehearsing, choreographing our own dances, meals out, fun and laughter. The old dance name Eshta belongs to Abingdon Dance Studios with whom we performed for many times. We all began our dancing with the Dance Studios years ago, and began practicing for ourselves weekly there too as well as taking regular lessons. Since finding our own dance venue to regularly meet and create our own choreography, we decided to have our own name too. Ashnah means 'change' in Hebrew which we felt was appropriate having changed our name.

All week the rain lashed down - and we were booked to dance at Dalton Barracks on the Saturday (along with the Abingdon Morris dancers), an annual spring event with BBQ. As if by magic the day dawned with lashings of sunshine which continued all day. We did find it extra warm though when we danced a little too near the huge BBQ next to us and a bit tearful when the smoke blew over us - all good fun though. Dalton Barracks laid on superb food that day, and it was lovely to see many families there.
