Ladies And Gentlement, The Dancing Light Is Lit!
Did You Know? - When the smoking lamp is lit it is alright to smoke, when it is out smoking is prohibited. From the naval phrase. Fire is the most dangerous threat at sea so, particularly on wooden ships, it was necessary to strictly control the use of fire and smoking materials. A lamp was hung on the forecastle, where sailors were allowed to sit and relax, and the sailors knew they could smoke their pipes if the lamp was lit. If it was not lit, smoking was not allowed.
Nita jumped straight up, did the 25 yard dash in 1.1 seconds, and got the Gunnery Sergeant
Joyce was right on Nita's trail arriving .00003 seconds larer
Shirley had farther to run...
"No Nita, you CANNOT take him home!"

Perhaps a little "soft shoe dance"
Did You Know? - Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one's tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. As such, it is also commonly considered to be a form of music. Two major variations on tap dance exist: rhythm (Jazz) tap and Broadway tap. Broadway tap focuses more on the dance. It is widely performed as a part of musical theater. Rhythm tap focuses more on musicality, and practitioners consider themselves to be a part of the Jazz tradition.
The sound is made by shoes with a metal "tap" on the heel and toe. Tap shoes can be bought at most dance shops.
"Soft-Shoe" is a rhythm form of tap dancing that doesn't require special shoes, and while rhythm is generated by tapping of the feet, it also uses sliding of the feet (even sometimes using scattered sand on the stage to enhance the sound of the performer's sliding feet) more often than modern rhythm tap. It preceded what is currently considered to be modern tap, but has since declined in popularity.

Can Can or Polka????
Did You Know? - The can-can (sometimes non-hyphenated as in the original French: cancan is a high-energy and physically demanding music hall dance, traditionally performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings.
The main features of the dance are the lifting and manipulation of the skirts, with high kicking and suggestive, provocative body movements.
The Galop from Jacques Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld is the tune most associated with the can-can (a somewhat simplified form
Listen to the CanCan
This is called "Sitting Cheek To Cheek"
Games Underway At The Table
Irene is worried... She thought she heard the words "Spin The Bottle"
"Yes Vicky, you can use our empty bottle... After you empty it!
Did You Know? - Spin the Bottle is a party game in which several players sit/stand/kneel in a circle. An empty bottle is placed on the floor in the center of the circle. A player spins the bottle, and must kiss the person to whom the bottle points when it stops spinning. It is popular among teenagers and is very embarrassing to most
