Swing yer partner, do-si-do!

Contra= Euphoria. Enough said. Ok, maybe not…
Every now and then my gals and I like to head over to Chantilly Hall in Charlotte for their Saturday night contra dance.  It is absolutely EUPHORIC!  I always laugh so hard that I get sick to my stomach, probably because of how ridiculous the whole thing is: dancing with middle-aged men, swinging around as fast as you can and staring, I mean, staring intently, into your partner’s eyes hoping so much that you don’t sick up on them… It’s pretty amazing!!  If you ever go, do your fellow contra dancers a favor and don’t drink alcoholic beverages beforehand 🙂  Here is a look at how it works:
