There is a popular tv show on this summer called "So You Think You Can Dance." It features lots of good and some bad dancers who compete for prizes and job contracts and such things. For the most part, it it entertaining but makes a few of us who really have little rhythm a bit uneasy. Dancing was something you did in middle, junior and high school and for my age group, it was dancing to music provided by live bands. I wasn't really good at dancing but with all the flashing lights and loud music I don't think anyone noticed. Last weekend, the concert held inside WesBanco arena by the Trainjumpers took me back to those good old days. I know it threatened to rain and the band was moved inside rather than on the patio, but that didn't matter much. They still rocked the place and prompted dancing from several in the audience. The band's rendition of "You Can't Always Get What You Want" was fabulous. Then on Saturday at Heritage Port, the Deja Vu band played tunes from the '50, '60s and '70s and delighted the crowd. But the most interesting part was that a few members of a generation a bit older than me got up and danced in the aisles. Another couple danced in the stage area. It didn't matter that people laughed or pointed at their dancing antics, these people just had fun. I wish I could be that brave. Hats off to the dancers, including the folks who take to the dance floor at the Waterfront Wednesday concerts at the port.
