Wish I had a time machine

Oh, how I'd love to go to that dance!

Facial Expression

I wonder what the woman in the center is thinking? She appears to have on a wedding ring, but they are dancing like they aren't too close. She doesn't look unhappy, but she is clearly thinking about something!

[Maybe the next call in the square dance. - Dave]

Frisky

Seems like the young man dancing with the polka dot girl is getting a bit "handsy."

[That's two girls dancing. - Dave]
