Once upon a time we had high school dances
often called "Hops." We had programs! We filled them
out with who we'd be dancing with each round of
music. Here's one I've found from my high school:
Grand March
Merry Mix up
Girl's Choice
Mutt & Jeff dance
Going to Jerusalem
Shoe Dance
Boy's Choice
Ring Dance
Relay Game
Penalty Dance
Le Conga
Boy's Choice
I certainly wish I could describe each dance
to you, especially the Mutt & Jeff one!
