Dancing is a very important part of American culture.
Americans have many chances to dance from a young age.
American high schools have “school dances” 3 or 4 times a year.
School dances are held in the school gymnasium from about to .
Boys usually wear a tie. Girls usually wear an evening dress.
Special student groups plan and decorate for the school dances.
Teachers and some parents go to the school dances, too.
I loved school dances at my high school!!
I was shy and afraid to ask girls to dance with me.
But sometimes I asked them and sometimes they said “Yes!” (~o~)/!!
