Dancing is just so fun! We knew we were going to have dancing as an important element of our reception, and we had the best time. We danced with each other and we danced with so many others and it was a joy to see everyone having a good time. The little kids that were there had a ball and we had many join in the ‘Chicken’ dance.
We’d spent several evenings putting together the list of songs we wanted and ordering them so that all the polka’s weren’t together. A combination of polka, two-step and waltz kept us moving for about 8,500 steps (thank you Fitbit), and once our friends, who dance every Saturday night, sprinkled the dance floor with slidy stuff, it was heaven on the dance floor.
You can’t help but move when the beat of the music stirs you, even those sitting in their seat or standing off to the side leaning on a counter were tapping their toes or keeping rhythm with their hands on the table top or their knee. Couples who haven’t danced for many years stepped on to the dance floor and rediscovered the joy of dance and maybe even each other.
For me, being in the arms of my husband was like coming home. We sang the words to each other and moved together into our new life as husband and wife.
