Since When... 14 year old boys like to dance?

Every year, the middle school my kids attend does what's called a "Winter Fest."  I believe the purpose of this evening is to showcase what the kids are learning.

One thing that the 8th graders are doing is partner dancing.  When this all started, G would come home all bummed because they "had to dance today."  This went on for days.

All of a sudden, a couple weeks ago, his tone completely changed.
Me:  "How was the day?"
G:  "Good.  We danced today."
Me:  "Huh?"

Then I started hearing the name Annalise.

So, here's what went down about two weeks ago.  Annalise approached G and told him that she wanted to be his partner because if not, some "short" guy was going to ask her.  I think G was thrilled, and now that I've looked through his facebook friends, I can see why.  HaHa!!!

My son is 14 also and it's all about girls, girls, and more girls.
He can't date until he is 16 so all he has our the church dances - ha ha.
It's tough being a teen sometime!
I love that they are partner dancing in your son's school - I think they should teach more of that:D

Yeah, he was telling me about it in the car and he seemed excited about dancing at Winterfest. I just chuckled to myself :)
