    I went to a private girls boarding school (last 18 months of high school) and they didn't make us dance - but they DID teach us etiquette.  Ugh.

    I dated a Junior National jitterbug champ and champion Irish dancer in college - he taught me all the latin dances, swing, shag and disco - I LOVED it.

      I enjoyed it, but wsn;'t much good at it. We'd liek to take lessons but can barely afford a fast food jaunt these days. SOme day....

      I had nuns.  We had a charm class.  The woman who taught it was practical, when asked how you et libster gracefully, she siad, "You can eat lobster or you can eat gracefully."

      First hsuband was an odd mixture --reared to be  Preppy upper class twit, but paid for hsi black belts by walkign dogs for the bery expensive call girls in hsi building, and ended up forming  an interrracial preppy gang because they all got tired of being beaten up by thte very a;rge, very mean Puerto Rican gang whose territory bordered the SIlk Stockign Distric tof NYC.   Hung out in Cenral Park with hippies.  Equallya t home in suit and tie or  Tee and jeans.   A fencer and an SCA fighter who could charm the birds out of trees.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
