Their Lockdown Story

When the first lockdown started in March 2020 we were attending school for 1 hour a day.  After school, we met at Eva’s home as we had re-purposed our basement and turned it into a little dance hall. As we are in the same grade in the same school, we were allowed to meet up.   We continued with a lot of help from our teachers Adam and Karen Reeve, where we took private lessons via Zoom as well as 2-3 times a week had group lessons with the HK Club kids. It kept us on our toes whilst continuing our dancing.   During the summer, we continued dancing when studios were allowed to reopen again. We also took some summer holidays when we could.  As it was not possible to travel abroad, we experienced a new kind of a domestic holiday which we greatly enjoyed!   We participated in the Blackpool Online Festival with the first one in August and were so happy to be able to compete, although online. The adrenaline and the magic of the Blackpool dance festival came through the web!   Our first domestic dance competition on the dancefloor was only 2 days away when everything went back into lockdown here again. The competition was allowed, but without any audience in attendance. It was still so much fun to be able to dance on the floor with other couples.  However, along came the lockdown again, with the social bans. Now, we have had the advantage of knowing the virus better and the schools managed to remain open, while mostly all athletic activities and sports were banned. So again, we were back in Eva’s basement for practice and Adam, Karen, and Barbara McColl taught us via Zoom almost every day and made it all much easier to cope.   Now we have the sun rising again and we can see the dust settling. We are now allowed social meetings and sports venues and competition have started with the limit of no audience; therefore, all of our comps are streamed live on the internet to those who wish to support us.   Gudjon and Eva
