On Friday after school, we had a Valentine's Day Dance. The gym was all decorated with banners, and balloons and streamers. It looked really groovy. As usual, Miss LaSalle was in charge of the music. She always chooses the best records!
Mrs. Taylor was at the refreshment table. There was chips, Oreo cookies, heart shaped cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and pink lemonade to drink. Yummy!
Mrs. Johnson walked around making sure there was no horsing around on the dance floor.
Wow, did we ever have a super time! School dances are always outta site, and this one was a ball!
Then Miss LaSalle and Mrs. Johnson announced that we'd be doing a Soul Train, and anyone who wanted to participate should line up by the basketball hoop.
In case you don't know what a Soul Train is, I'll fill you on. Soul Train is a music show that comes on after the Saturday morning cartoons are over. It has dynamite music, dancers, and super cool singing stars. Near the end of the show, the dancers get in 2 lines, and people take turns dancing down the middle. It's really fun, and lotsa people do it at parties. So some of us got in 2 lines. Jason was the first one to dance down the middle while Miss LaSalle played "Love Machine" by The Miracles.
Cheryl was next. She's a really good dancer. She takes ballet, and sometimes works her ballet moves into more modern dancing. And she's the only person I know who can do the splits! It's really something to see!
Next up was Robyn. She knows all the latest dances, because she never misses Soul Train! She practices all the dances she sees on TV every week.
Then it was my turn. I may not dance as good as Cheryl and Robyn, but I have some groovy moves, too!
Man, I really wish these dances lasted longer than 2 hours. That's when most of us are just getting warmed up! But since it was right after school, I guess the teachers wanted to go home. I don't know when we're gonna have another school dance, but I sure hope it's soon. I'm glad our teachers plan fun stuff like this for us kids to do. It just makes school a little more fun.
Until next time future readers,
