Yesterday afternoon we met up with our friends Kelly & Steve (known to Kelly’s toddler niece as Kecky and Teeb) to help them work on their wedding dance. They are getting married at the beginning of May. Kelly started ballroom at the same time I did, but didn’t stick with it seriously for want of a steady partner. Maybe this wedding dance will be the gateway drug that turns the newlyweds into dedicated dancers!
They already had a song picked out and we agreed that they should dance a rumba. They are quick studies and worked up a routine in less than an hour. I can’t wait to see them dance it at their wedding.
Surprisingly, they had not had enough dancing in the afternoon and agreed to have dinner with us and then go to the USA Dance chapter’s monthly dance in the evening. Paula taught some waltz basics at the lesson before the dance, which was very well attended. Everyone was decked out in their Valentine’s Day red. Daniel got to be one of several “dance hosts”: women paid $1 for a ticket to dance with a dance host, with the money going to our chapter. He collected ten tickets! He also took a bunch of videos during the evening, including the debut of a new line dance/mixer that Dianne taught us. I’ll post that to our YouTube channel as soon as Daniel figures out how to get the videos off his camera–it’s brand new.
