Growing up a "rink-rat" myself I was engulfed in the skating rink scene in combination with the beginnings of rap and break dancing. I remember how much fun it was to participate in all of it back in the early 80's. On Friday and Saturday nights we would all clear the skating rink floor @ 8pm for an impromptu break and pop dancing contest with random participants. Those were the days!! My favorite decade, the 80’s, is long gone but I keep hearing about a revival of break dancing contests going on around the nation. I’m impressed and excited that the younger generation can put their cell phones down long enough to dance!
PS….With all the talk of war, bombs and politics it’s a fresh reminder that many people ignore all of it! I’m working on that myself.
