I was raised in a dancing family–I still feel I am supposed to dance every Saturday night. We either danced at our country school or any of the neighboring schools.
Dances were social events–time for ranchers to get together and talk. The rancher’s life is a lonely life out taking care of cattle alone.
Dances brought us children together to dance, talk and play.
Dances were multigenerational–ages from a 3 month old baby to grandpa and grandma!
And dances were about the movement and the music–it was good old country and western music, local bands and dear friends that we bumped into on the dance floor.
To this day, my feet and heart want to be at a dance on a Saturday night!
