Molly Reid says that she grew up in Cajun country, learning Cajun dance in seventh-grade gym class.  She describes her experience of Cajun dance as part of a cultural experience growing up that she came to take for granted as an adult.  Bringing an out-of-town guest to Tipitina’s on a Sunday night for Bruce Daigrepont’s weekly fais do do provided the excuse to bring her experience up to date.  And it was a “middle-aged gentleman” who put her through her paces on the dance floor, reminding her of what fun social dancing can be.  Laissez les bon temps roulez!
