Dancing

In Fun

I came to dancing at parties in my late teens, but having the experience of everyone moving in unrehearsed sync to the same beat, mostly with variations of the same moves in a joyous atmosphere was, for me, a great part of growing with a Black identity in the US. In college, I learned that when white kids said "party" they meant getting high. For Black people parties meant music and dancing. At weddings and other family events everyone, regardless of age danced to the Temptations, Ohio Players, Aretha, JB, etcetera. It was secular and religious all at once and I don't see that much anymore. I hope I am just out of the loop.
