line dancing in gan

This past Saturday night number 3 had a havdala party in gan. I'm not sure what the point was, but they may have wanted to do something interactive with the parents and children. Number 3 got to choose which parent got to go with him and he chose me.

It was an entertaining evening. He didn't want me to dance with him, so I sat down and watched. The morrocan deejay (if you could call him that) turned the gan into a honky tonk and led the crowd in line dancing to Jewish music.

three steps left, kick your feet, two steps forward two steps back swing your partner round - kid slides through parent's legs. now back to back...

It was a lot of fun and the kids had obviously been practicing for a while.

ah...the pleasures of gan parties.

Which is worse for parents: the neverending gan parties, or the motzei shabbat pyrotechnic manic display after shabbat irgun?

someone at a party (israeli) once asked me if country music for americans is the same as mizrachi for israelis. i came up with a lot of bad joke potential that wasn't worth following through on for lack of audience but really couldn't come up with a good strait reply.
