Harvest Country Dance

We finally got to have a country dance at our house last Friday night. 'Twas great fun! We invited a few families from church. We had a smaller group, but it was just the right amount of people. We had a blast!

I got to call the dances that we did, which was so much fun. It was my first time calling and all went well.
 (I think :-)

Michael, my tech guy, spent hours helping me compile all of the music we needed and getting all of the sound stuff to work properly; not an easy feat, by the way.

I got most of the dance calls off of Dominion Dance. My siblings helped me practice some of the dances.

So, here's a list of the dances we did. I do not have pictures from all of them because of the lighting.
1. The Virginia Reel (of course)
2. Patty Cake Polka
3. Jefferson's Reel
4. The Gay Gordons (a personal favorite as I love getting twirled across)
5. Waves of Tory (I have never danced this one before, but it just looked so fun that I couldn't resist. It took some time before we all got it, but once we had it down I think the dancers all enjoyed it. I think we had the most people dancing on this one.)
6.The Physical Snob (Love it!)
7. Stellengers Round

We had a camp fire and roasted hotdogs for dinner. Everybody brought a pie (or two), which was a delicious addition.

We had so much fun that a couple of us are already thinking of when we can do another one. I want to find a bigger place so that we can invite more people.

God Bless!
