Out in to the World

It was inevitable that as the members grew up they would go out in to the world.  College, university and new family commitments had dancers coming to Sunday afternoon rehearsals from across the UK.  The dance practices were held between 4 and 6pm and sometimes started with a 5 minute polka. 

When performing away from Halifax Sprīdītis members would arrive in jeans, change into Latvian National Costume and then dress for the dance (balle).

One of many Latvian Weddings 
Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Klievens

Marriage and college had members leaving as they started new lives.  As they had families, they related tales to their children and many are frequently seen at Latvian functions.
