Dancing at Bethel

Tonight I watched a concert in the Benson Great Hall at Bethel College. Now picture the scene, Bethel is a Baptist General Conference school. This means conservative. The lifestyle statement has a “no school sponsored” dancing provision, however you want to decipher that. The Benson Great Hall is this really nice, acoustically harmonized concert hall that would be perfect for the Vienna Choir Boys (who have sung there). Then imagine a swing/punk band named Skooch taking the stage. Hepcats in their zoot suits (not really, but it sounds good) prancing around stage, and twenty people clustered in front dancing away. Dancing. In the Great Hall. At Bethel College. It’s nothing new, I saw it last year at several big time concerts. It’s just fun to see a reminder every once in a while.
