Did You Know? - A beach ball is an inflatable ball for beach and water games. Their large size and light weight take little effort to propel; they travel very slowly and generally must be caught with two hands.
They became popular in the beach-themed films of the 1960s starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. These movies include Beach Party, Muscle Beach Party, Beach Blanket Bingo and How to Stuff a Wild Bikini.
Studying the dance card...
Gentlemen...The music is about to start!
The music begins...Nightlighters dance
Is the music from the Beach Boys?
The Rythm Kings keep the energy level high all night!
Tom and Kathy glide across the floor as if on surf boards?
Working off those pesky calories ahead of time!
Kathy revealed her secret to doing the Hula!
The hula dance is simple: you put some grass on one hip,
some more grass on the other hip,
and then you rotate the crops.
We kept the floor occupied most of the evening
Dance Cards are still being finalized!
Did You Know? - A dance card or programme du bal (also known by its German-language name, Tanzkarte) is used by a woman to record the names of the gentlemen with whom she intends to dance each successive dance at a formal ball. They appear to have originated in the 18th century, but their use first became widespread in 19th century Vienna, especially at the massive balls during Fasching before Lent.
Dance engagements card for 11 January 1887, showing a list of all the dances for the evening - valse, polka, lancers and quadrille; opposite each dance is a space to record the name of the partner for that dance. After the event the card was probably kept as a souvenir of the evening
An actual dance card is typically a booklet with a decorative cover, listing dance titles, composers, and the person with whom the woman intended to dance.
Our Dance Director puts the finishing touches on her card
Sunset at the beach!

Creating their own tropical breeze!
The discerning nose detects the soon to arrive dinner!
Everybody heads to their table for the meal!
