My Dear Future Readers,
In so many Disney and non-Disney movies a romance begins with a dance. But what is the allure of the dance floor, really? Is it the sparkling lights? The music of the waltz? Or is it…..the most obvious of all–the partner you are dancing with?
Gentlemen in high society have always been rather “dashing” in their well-tailored suits. Ladies swoon over such gentlemen. If a gentleman asks you to dance, the lady must accept. It is the custom of high society that a dance must be accepted. The music starts and everyone else disappears. Imagine it. A romantic dance– just the two of you dancing and twirling to the music–a truly romantic setting.
Imagine the music, the partner you want to get to know better and then this dance that is a slow turn into romance itself. A dance that allows both of you to ask the questions that no other setting would allow.
“Would it be acceptable if I court you, milady?” the gentleman asked.
The lady blushed and smiled. “Of course, Sir.”
The gentleman smiled and twirled her. When they come back together, he asked, “So, do you come to balls such as this often?”
“Not often but I like them well enough,” the lady replied
A dance and a pleasant conversation. Is that not the start of a beautiful love story? Or perhaps a continuation of it. Maybe, it’s the magic of the moment when that person’s sparkle just right in the dimness of the lights that you see the truth. Love is in the air. I know that you might not believe it but I can’t dance. OOPS, did I just say that?
I can’t dance.
Yes, I did. But, I love watching people dance. That’s why I think that adding a dance to a story is a good thing. It gives the story just a little more romance than it used to have.
And yes, a good-looking gentleman would help a lot.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. I thank you all for your infinite support.
