Recently Carolyn and I took Laura Marie to see a hip hop dance group at The Freeman Stage in Bishopville. She really got into it! One of the neatest parts was when they did a song about Martin Luther King’s Jr.’s dream of an integrated nation where children of different races play together. During that song, Laura Marie was dancing happily with a little black girl about her age. It was as neat as it was adorable.
Incidentally, Laura Marie taught the girl to do a highly stylized dance that she invented. She calls it “the wedgie dance.”
