Let's Dance!

My favorite Broadway musical is "Wicked".  I can listen to the soundtrack over and over and over.  Everyone else is sick of hearing it but I can keep listening.   In case you have no idea  this show is a back story of the Wizard of Oz.  Elphaba is the future Wicked Witch.  She has a younger sister, Vanessa, who is in a wheelchair.  Glinda is Elphaba's roommate.  One of the songs is about the kids going to the Stardust Ballroom.  Vanessa says to the fellow she came with that she thinks he asked her there because he felt sorry for her.  He tells her no it's because she's beautiful and then he sings the lyric "Let's Dance!"  And in the show he twirls her around the dance floor in her chair.  I just love that part, it's very joyful. 

This image has nothing to do with "Wicked" or the "Wizard of Oz" but whenever I look at it I hear that lyric playing in my head.
