Dancing

Saturday night's Father-Daughter Dance at Cosumnes River Elementary school had a sock hop theme, which meant poodle skirts, saddle shoes and the like for girls who'd probably never seen such strange garb before. Appropriately attired, and dancing up a storm, were Justin Hayduk and daughter Addison. The theme seemed popular with the dads, who looked like they spent more time dancing than usual before retiring to the sidelines and leaving the dance floor to the girls. But wait – there's more. Read more » Read more » about Dad-Daughter Dance is back to the '50s

A new dance, under the (black) lights

| Filed under

Black-light dance

It was time to glow Saturday evening at Cosumnes River Elementary School as the PTA staged its first mother-son dance. True to advance billing, this was not your traditional dance. For one thing, there were no wallflowers. Well, not among the boys anyway. Inspired by black lights, neon and non-stop music, for quite a while the boys dominated the dance floor with high-energy hip-hop moves while their moms looked on or danced in satellite groups. The activity level stayed high with air hockey, ping pong, Twister and other games. (Click the photo for a larger image.) Read more » about A new dance, under the (black) lights
