Batyus Bál

A group of our YSA women have been having dances at the Stake Center every couple of months.  In May it was a ball with fancy attire.  This is the second year that they have planned this ball.  They funded this ball “auctioning” off each attendee.  They would pay to spend some time (a date) with whomever they “bought.”

They started the dance with a prayer and a inspirational thought.  Gabor gave the Church doctrine about why we do not wear masks at our parties and dances.  Then the instruction began..

IMG_1710These dances take several months to prepare and this one was no different.  For this one they asked professional dancers to teach them how to waltz.  Unfortunately, at the last minute there was  a conflict and they had to find someone else.  They asked Timi and her brother Norbi to teach!  And they were fantastic.  They took their roles as dance teachers very seriously and did a fabulous job!  They have had dance lessons, themselves…

IMG_1716The dancers were instructed on the proper way to stand and hold each other as well as the actual waltz steps.  The instruction part took about one hour..  Then some very formal (classical music formal) waltzes were played and the participants danced.

After the formal part of the dance, they brought out the open faced sandwiches, chips, flavored drinks – and then back to the regular dance music.  We left them dancing away…

To get to the dance, we took the metro to the last stop and walked over to the stake building; the Carpenters drove us back home.  We are getting so brave!  (HA)
