“Friends” Line Dancers at the 11th Zeytinlik Olive Festival

The “Friends” Line Dancers certainly get around and following doing their routine at the Fiddlathon in Girne last Saturday they were again strutting their stuff at the Zeytinlik Olive Festival on Wednesday.

Janet and Stephen Bartholomew have given me news of the group’s activities and were pleased to supply some pictures at the Olive Fest and some comments about the event.

“Friends“ Line Dancers all agreed that taking part and being so warmly received at the yearly Zeytinlik Olive Festival is one of the highlights of living here in Cyprus.

After a twenty minute performance with much audience participation, especially when dancing to the music of Tarkan, the group had a much appreciated supper of kebabs and a soft drink.

We had such a good night, Stephen really played to the audience got them all clapping and laughing at his antics, he used to play drums in a 60`s band in his hey-day so is never nervous on stage.”

The “Friends” Line Dancers meet at the Punjab Restaurant in Lapta on Mondays and Wednesdays (beginners) so if you are an accomplished line dancer or would like to learn make contact on either of the following telephone numbers : 0533 8215185 / 0542 8820366
