Mulepackers are often asked to take part in demonstrations at fetes, clubs, public events and private parties. Below are details of some we have supported.
New Sarum WI 2nd January 2019
Thanks to Jenny for inviting us to do a talk and demonstration at the New Sarum WI on Wednesday 2nd January 2019. Nearly all their members including Ann, Irene and Christine (who come to our clubs) got up to learn Cowboy Charleston. Thank you Steph, Chris, Marianne, Elsie, David, Margaret and Kay for supporting us. The WI donated a cheque to our 2019 charity - Salisbury Hospice.
We ran a line dancing workshop in conjunction with Jackie Edmett's Stars Appeal fund raising in November. Here is a compilation of clips from the evening.
West Tytherley Fete 16.6.18
Thanks to Diana, Hilary, Janet, Lin, Liz, Marg, Marianne, Mo, Pat and Ray for dancing on wet grass in the showers at West Tytherley fete.
Wessex Country Fair (raising funds for Salisbury Hospice) 6.8.17
Thanks to Margaret, Steph, Chris, Kay, Elsie, David, Jean and Ray for doing the dance demo at Wilton House. We have never danced on such difficult grass - newly cut long grass with the cuttings ankle deep! Have heard that the fair was very successful with targets being met for hospice funds - again thanks everyone.
Salisbury and South Wilts Golf Club
30th September 2016
Mike and Mel were asked to provide an evening of line and partner dancing at Salisbury and South Wilts Golf Club. We were pleased at how many got on the floor to have a go at dancing some basic dances. The evening was supported by several of our Mulepackers members too - thanks to those who came along.
Chance to Dance in the Market Square
2nd September 2016.
We had a team of 9 dancers who joined us to put on a demonstration of line and partner dancing, organised by the Arts Centre. We were really proud of our team who danced on stage and put on a brilliant display. Thanks too to Dave who handed our details of our clubs to everyone watching!! Thanks too to our club members who came to watch and give us their support. In spite of some initial nerves, we really did have a lot of fun.
New Year's Eve 2015
Mike and Mel were asked to do some dancing for the residents at Ashley Grange Nursing Home to accompany a live music session. It was very lovely to involve the residents and staff and a privilege to have been asked.
18th July 2015
Laverstock Fun Day
18th February 2015
Our "demo team" joined the W.I. at Porton Hall this afternoon. After dancing several line dances, nearly everyone got up and had a go at "Come On and Dance". It was a lovely afternoon; enjoyed by all the W.I. members and us! We had tea, sandwiches and cakes provided by the W.I. for which many thanks. As a result of a most enjoyable afternoon, we will be having some new members joining us on a Monday evening.
20.1.2015: A whole load of us were joined by the Brownies at Porton last night (19th January) and they learned Cowboy Charleston which they performed for their Mums and Dads. They were a real credit to Brown Owl. Fantastic to have the very young and the not quite so young all dancing shoulder to shoulder and helping each other.
