Two things. One: Why is LJ suddenly not working? I get basic page content, no header or menubar. Other pages are ok.

Two: In old-fashioned dancing - or country-dancing for that matter - where men and women line up facing each other and then a couple from the top of the line dance together down to the bottom, what is this called. For some reason the phrase 'en passage' is in my head and I don't think that's it. I know nothing about dancing terms. I suppose I should really do a bit of research. But then, you know, there's the grandson. He smiles at me.

In US contra dance/country dance, it seems to be calling "progressing." But I'm sure there are other terms for it.

And sometimes they dance together, other times they change partners as they go.

Note: "Suicide Contra" is a dance in which one couple moves from the top, and another from the bottom.
