It's Ve-ry Clear...

The local Arthur Miller studio was kind enough to take us in for an Emergency Dance Class. After a mere 45 minutes, we can fox trot with grace. We also learned how to change up the fox trot with turns and promenades, and how to throw in a little triple-step swing. Jim, our instructor, even taught us a basic samba for the bossa nova tunes.

...In time, the Rockies may crumble, Gibraltar may tumble...

We're such rebels, doing a fox trot for our first dance. Waltz is traditional, you know.

It's a pleasure to see you having so much fun with this. Despite the name of your blog, these past few days is the first time I've known you to float.

Floating is the goal for me. I'm not very good at it. :)

Did you mean the Arthur Murray studio? Or if not, do they teach "Tango of a Salesman"?

I kid.

Since neither of us can dance, really, and learning how didn't seem to be an option, we opted for a jazz trio, thereby eliminating the need for a "first dance" or anything like that. We did not, in fact, dance at our wedding. Others did, but they had a clue about what they were doing.

Two bits of advice to you: First, drink a lot of water. Don't start drinking alcohol right away, even though servers and such will offer it to you as they would to the other guests. I had several glasses of club soda before I had any wine, and, as a result, stayed sober enough to enjoy the party. Once you start with the alcohol, alternate: a glass of water, a glass of wine. (If you learn how to turn the first into the second, you've got another career choice!)

Second, don't spend a lot of time with anyone. You will be tempted to do so, especially if there are old friends and such, but that will lead to leaving people out. Once you've spent time with everyone, you can go back for more (or wait until the after-party).
