Advertised as “West Philly Old-Time Square Dancing,” the organizers can be congratulated on the success of their very first dance. Folks poured into the room ready to embark on a dance experience that was new to many of the participants. A bit of chaos to start, but everyone was in great spirits as the caller selected fun dances. The band played energetic music, folks laughing and smiling through their steps.
In the video, “heal an’ toe, heal an’ toe and slide . . . clap, swing . . . on to the next.” Great way to dance everyone in the room!
Next dance, February 26.
