We are a small but enthusiastic group of linedancers who meet weekly in Bridport, Dorset. Our venue is the WI Hall, North St Bridport. We are led by Anne, who does her best to keep us under control. This is not an easy task as, although we take the dancing seriously, we don’t always take ourselves seriously and have been known to collapse in fits of giggles, actually we do this at least once a week.
As a group we have moved around a bit, we danced in Bridport then had to change our venue to Beaminster, we are now back in Bridport and hope to stay there. Due to the changes we have also had name changes, starting off as Bridport Honkytonk Stompers, then becoming Honkeytonk Stompers, after our move back to Bridport where we amalgamated with another group we are now known as The Honkytonk Kickers.
I have often wondered whether it was a premonition to call us Honky-tonk Stompers, looking at the thesaurus definition from Dictionary.com you will see that we may be aptly named depending upon whether we are a noun or an adjective!!! The main thing is we learn dances, get some exercise, enjoy the music and have a good evening.
