Our world has changed drastically over the last few weeks, with the COVID-19 pandemic really taking hold and the UK Government having to enforce stricter measures to halt the spread of the virus. However, amid the madness of locking down, missing toilet roll, and washing hands, we still managed to celebrate St. Patrick's Day - it was just a little different this year.
Troupe Ellis-Parr were lucky enough to be able to perform in our communities prior to the introductions of stricter measures across the UK and we all had a brilliant time. Our dancers were amazing as usual and we received 100% positive feedback for all our performances. A huge compliment for us is being automatically booked for the following year, and this happened with a number of our venues., so our performance slots for 2021 are already starting to fill up.
Sadly, on St. Patrick's Day, we had to announce the closure of our classes for the foreseeable future, due to the measures having been increased for COVID-19, causing our venues to close. However, we just moved our celebrations online by sharing our favourite memories and pictures of years gone by. While it wasn't quite the same as raiseing a glass together and dancing the day and night away, it was wonderful to look back at all the wonderful memories we have made as a school over the last 10 years.
We hope you all found a way to celebrate this year, regardless of the strage times we are currently living in at the moment.
