    Have a nice sabbatical Nina

    Johnah announced after the cabarets at Southport on Saturday night, that Nina is taking a year out to do a bit of travelling, and all the non-dance things that she likes to do but never has time. Was a very nice moment followed by a jam dance with Nina dancing with as many guys as possible. There was also a lovely moment in the Blues room later on when peter Phillips was DJing, with Peter saying that Nigel & Nina were pretty much the instigators of blues rooms at weekenders, followed by some great dances for Nina with Nigel, Victor, and others. So I'd just like to wish Nina a good year out, and hope she gets to do all the things she wants to, then comes back in a years time refreshed and ready to go. We'll all miss her and Southport won't be the same without her

    Part of me wishes Nina a "Bon Voyage", and another part wishes she'd change her mind - purely because I've never had the courage and opportunity simoultaneously, to ask her for a dance. Oh how I rue those wasted moments, now I have to wait at least a year!

    I hope Nina has a fab time travelling the world!

    Any distant dance hall she may breeze into, on her travels, will be in for a treat. She is an amazing dancer, and is brilliant to dance with!

    ....hhhm... wonder if we will see new influences and inspirations when she gets back....


    Safe Journey.... and a rollicking good walkabout Nina!

    I didn't hear about the sabbatical until well after I'd grabbed Nina during that jam. So I'll just have to let those 30 seconds of dance live on in memory. I know there are other threads eulogising about Nigel & Nina, and what they have done for the dance scene, so I won't go on, but for those guys that think she is scary, it's not true! I reckon it's just Nigel's ruse to make sure he gets lots of dances with her!

    Yay, Nina, have a great time. It's good to have a break.

    Not many people have seen Nina dance as a leader, but I have had the privelige of dancing with her as a follower. Apart from being scared has hell, it was great fun - as she said, at least I know she's going to hit all the breaks. Guys, I now know how scary but fantastic dancing with can Nina be.

    Nina, if you see this, have a great time and all good wishes go with you.

    Well , I am a very ordinary MJ dancer and I thought well I won't get a chance to dance with Nina so go for it. :smug icon: Not only was she lovely to dance with, she didn't make me feel she was "coming down" to my level of dancing. We also had a little chat about her plans for her trip - and blow me, she is an ordinary person like the rest of us. I hope she has a great time.

    I have enjoyed our dances the past year

    I will miss you. You have the most playful eyes and cheeky smile that made dancing with you such a pleasure.

    Thank you for the farewell dance at Southport.

    Sorry Nina
    but I don't believe for a moment that your going. It just won't be the same.Unless ofcourse your just going on to better things in which case I'm definately up for the journey and if you ever want to crash at mine - drop me a line.
    Cas you're the best
