Winter Break Dancing

When The Kids Are Off: The kids are off from school, but the parents / guardians still need to show up at work. Not, as Abq Jew not-so-fondly recalls, to actually do any work; rather, just to be at work.

This leaves the parents / guardians running, racing, and dancing their way through the end of one year and the beginning of the next. Fortunately, the Duke City offers some interesting, educational, and entertainingly Jewish alternatives. Here are three of them.

If you're going to dance, Abq Jew has learned, you would do well to find a partner who is Easy to Dance With. For example: Fred Astaire and Virginia Dale, from the film (one of Abq Jew's favorites) Holiday Inn. And yes, the song is by Irving Berlin. Enjoy!
