  1. Learning how to dance to Alley Cat in 1969… Now that makes me laugh. Enjoyed.


  2. Oh yeah, it was a very controversial thing to combine the boys and the girls. If I recall we did square dancing, too. Emphasis on square, I suppose I should say, in hindsight! Glad you got a giggle.


  3. Circa 1969: Sexually suggestive music for primary school age children to dance to – girls and boys dancing in the same room – FORBIDDEN!!! Thou shall not look at each other nor shall you hold each others hands ….SINNERS!!!
