Here the YSAs are slow dancing the steps we taught them - slow, slow, slow, quick-quick; slow, slow, slow, quick-quick, .... They seemed to catch on pretty quick.
After we got them going with a few fast dance numbers, they spontaneously formed a dance circle and some of them "showed off their moves!!"
Then when I turned on "YMCA" they really got excited. I guess that's become a really international sensation. They new what to do!!!!
This last photos shows them doing the "Cowboy Boogie." They learned fast and again, seemed to get into it. We ended with the "Virginia Reel". It took a little more to teach them all the steps, but for the most part they caught on and had fun. Afterward they kind of collapsed into the chairs and we couldn't get them moving again so we ended the dance a little early, but it was no problem; after all of the day's activities they were literally exhausted.
