The music begins. He extends his hand and ask you to dance. The chivalry, elegance, and grace are bound up in this magic that carries us into a trance with the one, two, three; one, two, three. Around the line of dance you go feeling like a princess and then it happens. Your leading man makes (as you see it) an error in his step. The next thing you know, Dorothy is looking for the Wicked Witch of the West who is now dancing in your dress. The smile straightens and the eyes ooze condescension. My dear lady dancers, let us not forget that we are a fortunate group of women wh o receive that extended hand; a privileged group that is lead around the floor. The leading partner executes his steps, anticipates the variations, and navigates you safely through the traffic on the floor. Let’s appreciate the chivalry. Enjoy the dance. Thank your leading man. DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT LEADS YOU! See you on the Floor!
