    Hmm. Maybe? I honestly don't remember why we did it. I was a new student that year so it wasn't something I was familiar with and I don't think we did it after 6th grade :idk:

    No. Thank god. Country music sucks and the southern accent is incredibly grating to my ears.

    Rural upstate NY elementary school in the mid 1980's. Yes we did. Do-si-do, Promenade.... All the classics.
    The joke we all would sing as 5th graders, acting like we'd invented it, was "Swing your partner round and round, put her in the toilet and flush her down."

    Where did you grow up?

    This definitely wasn't a thing in west Texas where I grew up.

    But maybe it's just because I was an athlete and wasn't in PE like the nerds

    Yes, but it was in middle school when kids were going through puberty. A lot of sweaty palms while learning the waltz.

    No, but I went to a Southern Baptist school through 8th grade, so dancing of any kind was likely considered a sin.

    No, of course not.

    Sometimes I think about how insane it was that I was hanging onto a rope with one hand at the top of the gym touching the ceiling with my other hand, at like 13 years old. What the fuck were they thinking.

  30. Had a whole semester of practicing square dancing culminating in some Gold Rush day where our parents were forced to pretend to enjoy our prancing around. This was mid 90s in Socal/South Bay. Vividly remember it cuz the girl I was forced to dance with smelled like fish

    We had two rival schools from across the country come over for a friendly (but dangerous!) competition. In the weeks leading up to our joint Yule Ball we had to wear our formal robes and learn, because the Yule Ball is first and foremost, a dance.

    Well yeah they've migrated over the years. It's like they saw a better way of life and fried chicken and said fuck it I'm in.

    And didn't do line dancing but did do international dances. Can do the Mexican hat dance and Tarantella. Maybe the Virginia reel. But no boot scootin' boogie.
