New Moon was only formed at the very end of 2014, but danced out at 18 different events, has gained several new members and we have made many new friends.
We danced at many places, these are some of the highlights - some of the fun we've had, and some of the many friends we've made:
Our first public 'dance out' was at Pitstone Museum, closely followed by dancing with many other sides in Oxford.
