Family Dance

Last weekend we had a home learners family dance and, for entertainment, we arranged for a performance by a groovy marimba band comprised of home learner alumni followed by a performance by an equally groovy, if less animated, iPod. Leading up to the event, we spent many hours perfecting and fine-tuning our DJ set list to ensure a wild night of dancing for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest. But most of those in the “youngest” category had other ideas. Hmmm… decisions, decisions. Crazy Frog or Kapla blocks? ABBA or scaling the outdoor sculptures? Dexys Midnight Runner or romping through the playground? Devo or messing with the disco ball? Groove Armada or self-flagellation?

Them kids gots their priorities out a whack or what??? One member of our family, at least, did cut several rugs… so much so that walking up and down stairs proved quite a challenge for her the next day!
