dance the night away....

a bit blurry, huh?

well the evening is quite clear.

remember when i wrote about scott? well last night it was scott redux. we attended the st. louis ballroom society's dance at the mahler ballroom and there were two professional dance instructors who first lead a class in the cha cha cha and then throughout the evening asked members of the dancing audience to accompany them out to the dance floor. my heart leapt into my throat and i could barely believe my ears. i drank three gin and tonics to get through the night and then with some expertly timed bathroom breaks, i eluded having to dance with anyone but my dearest and oldest dance partner. and then in order to stave off the advances of the pros, we danced lots of dances we wouldn't normally try including the samba (imagine you're putting out cigarette butts with your toes and move your hips a bit and you've mastered this latin number)! ahh, maybe that was the point of having the professionals there--to scare you into dancing when you really wanted to plant your seat in a comfy chair and sip a cocktail. at any rate, we had a fabulous time. thanks, katherine and michael for letting us tag along.
