Quotation To Remember:
"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"
— Puck's gleeful comment on the fallings in and out of love of Helena, Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius.
The music begins and Nightlighters dance... It's in the blood!
Swinging and swaying to the Rhythm Kings
Amazing how many people stop at the door, look in and wish...
"I want to be able to do that!"
They got the memo on wearing black!

The band is keeping us very busy!
Swing dancing never looked so good!
Did You Know? - The term "swing dancing" is often extended to include other dances that do not have certain characteristics of traditional swing dances: West Coast Swing, Carolina Shag, East Coast Swing, Hand Dancing, Jive, Rock and Roll, Modern Jive, and other dances developed during the 1940s and later.
Go Carmen go!
Follow their moves... If you can!
Oh dear, I forgot... Who goes under first?
He tells all the ladies he hasn't danced in years!"

It's the Nightlighter's... Everybody dances!
Did You Know? - The word 'love' appears 2,191 times in the complete works. The number is based on the 1864 Globe Edition – the amount could vary slightly from edition to edition. Altogether, there are 28,829 unique word forms in all of Shakespeare's works, and 12,493 occur only once.

The proposed theme? "Name That Tune"
Did You Know? - Name That Tune is an American television game show that put two contestants against each other to test their knowledge of songs. Premiering in the United States on NBC Radio in 1952, the show was created and produced by Harry Salter and his wife Roberta.
Name That Tune ran from 1953–59 on NBC and CBS in prime time. The first hosts were Red Benson and later Bill Cullen, but George DeWitt became most identified with the show. The series finished at #30 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1956-1957 season.
Everyone takes a short rest!
