Dancing in the mall

There were three of them initially - dancing up a storm to the music of Sinatra and Tony Bennett and Tommy Dorsey, etc. One man and two women. The women took turns dancing with the man. The music came from a small CD player on a table by the entrance to Belk's department store.

Every so often, one of the women would invite another person to dance with her. On occasion the offer was accepted.

I've not seen such a thing before. It appeared they were selling music CD's and the dancing was to attract attention. I wasn't interested enough to find out for sure.

After a while one of the women left. Soon thereafter the other woman and the man packed up their CD player and their CD's and also departed the scene. Haven't seen them since.

You are funny; "haven't seen them since" made me chuckle.

marchand ambulant de danse ;) c'est vrai que l'on en voit rarement dans les centres commerciaux,dommage car cela peut mettre de l'ambiance (ou mettre mal a l'aise les gens qui passent et qui ne savent pas danser ;o))). Dans les centres commerciaux, ils se passent toujours quelque chose ;))

You should go to Buenos Aires, where they dance the tango in the streets.

Well, too bad they're gone...did you get asked to dance, and did you? None of this "I might drop my camera' business!

I sort of like this idea. Socializing at the mall!

They got you to take a picture. I think that was their plan all along.

Guess it didn't work the way they hoped!
