What people say about Sibby


I think you’ll have gathered that everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves, including my wife and I.  Thank you very much for that: you made it great fun.  Your choice of dances was well made for people of our agility and energy (or limited supply of!) and your talk about barn dance history was just what I had hoped for, adding as is did an element of learning to the event in keeping with the purpose of the U3A.  Much appreciated

Saturday 9th March 2019  WINCHMORE FDC with FOREST BAND: What an excellent evening you gave us last night (writes Joyce Leedham). We thoroughly enjoyed your mix of new dances and old favourites, complete with all the variations on a theme.  ‘Flipperty’ was gorgeous, once we’d mastered the timing and the Florida turn. The Tulloch turn in Enna added to our moves too.  In fact, very painlessly, you gave us quite an education along the way and may even have improved our style. It was a lovely mixed programme, all dances clearly explained and keeping us on the move at all times.  We also appreciated Anne’s input, both musically and on the dance floor. Many, many thanks to you and Anne for entertaining us so royally.


Just a line from me to thank you once again for such a wonderful afternoon yesterday. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely, and the music and calling  was first class.
