92nd Carnival of Genealogy, Dance, Let's Cut a Rug
As I tend to do when I see a challenge, I ran right to my data base and photos. Who do I have photos of that I can use to demonstrate the story or challange, as in this case, dancin! I especially like it if these are photos of direct line ancestors or descendants, or, in the rare case, Man and Moi. I KNEW of one photo that would make this challenge post, my grandmother Florence. But, first, lets see if I can dig out any stories from the questions presented.
Did you take dance lessons as a child? Sure don't remember dance lessons. I did take some dance classes in high school and college. I really appreciated modern dance, Martha Graham and her form of the art deeply impressed me, moved my soul.
Did your parents go out dancing every Friday at the Elks Hall? Not that I remember.
Do you enjoy taking in a good ballet at the theater? Well, mmmmm, no. I don't think performances of Cats or Oklahoma or Phantom of the Opera count here, do they??
Care to share a memory from your high school prom? My mother made my dress, and I don't seem to have a photo of it scanned, so, I cannot show you. (Note to self, when you get back to the stick built, find that photo.)
What role does dancing play in your family history? Ready for this??? Man and I went to dances on our first 4 dates. Seems those 4 dates were all in less than a 2 week time frame. Yep, we loved dancing.
I don't have any photos of my parents dancing, so, that generation has no representation at this time.
