Footloose

Hey, it's 1984 all over again...

WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - As many as 1,200 students at Wheaton College will gather in the gym Friday night for the first real dance in the Christian school's 143-year history.

Which explains why students in recent days have been seeking out classmates who know this stuff and looking for places where they can practice. And it explains why on Monday night and Tuesday night, dozens of students packed a room on campus for a quick dance lesson.

Andy Morgan, one of the students at the lesson, said he figured he was in no danger of embarrassing himself. He went to a high school that did not permit dancing. And when it came time to pick a college, he settled on a school that had not allowed social dancing since the war. The Civil War.

If this rebellion means dancing to Kenny Loggins, maybe it isn't worth it. Just a thought...

I have a few friends who went to Wheaton. As I understand it they've been having swing dance classes on campus in preparation for the big shindig this weekend.
