I first knew about square dancing from a show on TV that my dad used to love to watch.
I wish I could remember the name of it......people would sit around on hay bales while girls in swirling gingham skirts and men in checked shirts and cowboy boots do-si-doed around the floor.
I loved it. Sat with rapt attention for every show.
Years later, in high school, for open day, my class had to do a display of folk dancing. I was in heaven! This, to me, was so much like square dancing.
I'm reminded of this by the TV show I'm watching right now. (Friday 11th)
Happy Days. The Cunninghams, and Fonzie too, are at a ranch, riding horses and doing other ranchy stuff....at the end of the day, they're in the barn watching the square dancing.
Took me right back to being seven years old again.
Now I'm wondering if I can find square dancing classes anywhere near me. At a time when I'm not working of course. I'd quite like to give this a try.
