    How many can do this, is it a dead activity replaced by bum wiggling and all manner of contortions.

    I went to ballroom dancing classes for several years w/ my wife (not as much as it sounds, we just kept going for beginner/intermediate lessons) - Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Swing, Waltz, Salsa.

    The fast ones such as Salsa are too much for my aging hips, but I enjoyed the Rumba.

    If you go to a real ballroom, there's one thing that you'll need to be spry for: when the buffet opens, you'd better to dive for cover. Those 90 year old ladies can move when they want to.

    Sounds like every one should be dancing to Dem bones, Dem bones, Dem dry bones o:)

    And may be there are no women here old or young enough to know about what proper dancing is. :surprised

    Ballet......Swan Lake....aaah to see dance expertly performed.
    It always brings a lump to my throat to watch the Hokey Cokey.

    Ok, I will dance one dance with one fella. Let me just finish securing the third of three petty coats under this ball gown. I have to be back by 11:30 or .............. I just hate the sound of clock chimes.

    I actually had a dream about waltzing the other night. I was terrible, but at least I finally got the hang of it. That was the most bizzare night of dreams I've ever had.

    Just because it fits the topic :)

    Larry LaPrise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at
    the age of 84. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him
    into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble
    started.



    for those not familiar with the dance
