The Barn Dance
Last Saturday, a group of my friends and I got all dressed up and went to the Barn Dance. The Barn Dance is a country-style dance put on by Pi Sigma Phi here at OBU. Everyone dresses in country clothes such as plaid, jeans, sundresses, and of course, cowboy boots. Most of us knew absolutely nothing about two-step or line dancing, but we were excited to learn!
We all piled into cars and drove to the dance which was located at the Shawnee Feed Center Pavilion. There were tons of people there, but we jumped right into the action! A lot of the music played was country, but there was also some hip-hop and classic rock. My favorite song they played was “Footloose.” After watching people around me, I learned the dance in no time. The footwork in “Footloose” is so fun!
One thing I noticed at the Barn Dance was that there were many different types of dancing. Some people were full out square dancing with their dates while others just kinda jumped around to the beat. It was nice to know that there were all kinds of dancers there ranging from absolute beginners to experienced two-steppers.
At the end of the night after a couple of hours of dancing we all piled back into our cars and went to Denny’s. The Barn Dance was a great way to hang out with friends on a Saturday night and have a fun time! I encourage people to try it out next year — trying new things with friends is always a blast.
