One great advantage of the dance is the aid it gives in correcting defects of deportment. It is a most effective cure for shyness and self-distrust in public. It is a valuable antidote to awkwardness and hesitancy. It develops self-possession and an easy, competent carriage. And it accomplishes these benefits without expense to natural modesty, for modesty of deportment is one of the prime requirements of the ball room.

The Fourth week of May is:

International Pickle Week
Here's some info about this "event", first "celebrated" in 1948.

Teach your dancers Pickle Up a Doodle...and make sure they get a fun badge (A088 pickle up a doodle 122 Dancing with no mistakes to Windsor record #4823.). BTW, did you know that Theresa Brewer originally recorded Pickle Up a Doodle?
