Last week for our combined youth activity we danced! We began by talking about dance etiquette: how to ask someone to dance, leading your partner on and off the dance floor, dress standards, hygiene (always shower and use deodorant!), etc. Then one of our leaders taught a few ballroom dance steps, and the youth practiced while politely asking and thanking new partners with each song. It was a great way to get ready for the new school year and the monthly youth dances that come with it.
Afterwards we had punch and cookies, and asked each young man to deliver a treat to a young woman (chivalry is alive!). These are Frostbite Cookies – a recipe found on Pinterest. Very yummy.
Speaking of Pinterest, I am linking up to The Modern Marigold’s “pin-did” challenge, because we all know there are thousands of amazing ideas on PInterest, and it’s so fun to pin, make, and share again!
