What a good dance! I went to the Greenwich (Connecticut) contradance last night, and had such a great time there. See this post for my earlier comments on dancing. Yesterday was such a fine day, and a great contra was such a fine way to end it. (The image to the right is from Wikipedia, from a different dance; click to enlarge.)
Kathryn Wedderburn called the dance, and the band was Jane's Gang — they always do a wonderful job. The dances kept us all moving, the band kept us all smiling, and the beginners in attendance picked it up well and were also having a good time (there are always beginners at contradances, and many dances have brief "getting started" sessions a half hour before the dance starts). I had an evening full of delightful dance partners — I thank them all, though I doubt they're reading this.
I commented to one of my dance partners that no matter what my mood is during the day, when I go to a contra and start dancing, I feel upbeat and good.
This post's title comes from a contradance t-shirt that used to be around, back in the days of the Nicaraguan contras.
