Dancing turns "serious" or as serious as it ever gets!

Did You Know? - U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956 into law during June of 1956. The Federal Highway Act authorized the creation of the interstate system with the construction of over 41,000 miles of highways across the United States. It was the largest U.S. Public construction project to be undertaken by the government at the point in history and was estimated to cost between $25 and $30 billion to build. Eisenhower pushed for the creation of the interstate system, citing a benefit to national security as the highways would allow for faster and safer evacuation routes in the event of a nuclear attack. The Federal Highway Act also helped to boost the auto industry, solidifying the car's place in American culture.

Did You Know? - The conga line is a novelty dance that was derived from the Cuban carnival dance of the same name and became popular in the US in the 1930s and 1950s. The dancers form a long, processing line, which would usually turn into a circle. It has three shuffle steps on the beat, followed by a kick that is slightly ahead of the fourth beat.
The line gets longer!
Coming down the hallway!
Back into the dining room
Somehow all the desserts have disappeared!
