John and I went to a folk dance workshop last Saturday and learned some great new dances, including an Israeli couple dance with a flying leap in it. It's so much fun! We are also getting ready for several performances this fall, and I'm getting excited. I really love dancing, and on that note, here are some quotes about dancing:
