Mardi Gras Dance
We are at the Mardi Gras dance with Beckley Area Shag Club on Saturday, March 2. We became members last month, but we did not know anyone in this club until the dance. I wanted to take this moment to express my appreciation for the hospitality and welcome we received. Although we are willing to learn Shag dancing, our expertise is in Ballroom and Latin dancing. We know West Coast Swing, which is a slot dance similar to Shag, and we know East Coast Swing, which has the triple step, triple step, rock step of Shag. I want to thank the Shag Club in Beckley as well as our local chapter in Charleston for their willingness to accept our diversity. They treat each of us as one of them. It’s a beautiful feeling to sense connection in diversity.
