"Gratitude and thanksgiving makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
and creates a vision for tomorrow."
However the West is beginning to shape up. They are beginning to realize that we will find a place where we can dance with the freedom to drink whatever we damn well please. "I'll have a lemonade, please." And not feel like you are not wanted and just excess baggage. And we have never met a dancer who was against cover charges. But we must find what we want, not what someone else wants us to want. And we will have adjustments on both sides.
"Tuxedo Junction" ... Glenn Miller
It is coming, And then the West will explode with action. But they must leave the last century in the last century. This is the twenty first, and the game is going to be played by the cultural dancer's rules or not played at all. The music for this century will be Waltz, Foxtrot, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha and Swing, fixed throughout the night. Ah yes, a little Line dance, Tango, Samba, Salsa, why not? This is social, you name it! We don't have anyone in Washington D C or wherever dictating our dance. And most everyone will be able to dance with others in the most sociable of manners.
I Am A Dancer

By Martha Graham
I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living.... In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes the shape of achievement, a sense of one’s being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.
