April 23... Sanctus and Swing Dancing

Today was a busy day! After getting my assigned homework done early, I decided to have some time to wind down and do something enjoyable. So, me and Kyle went to the Kent Concert Hall to see
African Sanctus
an awesome choral production that USU performed. The creator of this masterpiece, David Fanshawe, traveled to Africa, recording tribal and folk songs and other musical performances by the inhabitants. He felt inspired from God to use those as a base for creating his own pieces, which include guitar, piano, and drums along with a choir. These pieces were extremely captivating and interesting to listen to. I really enjoyed this performance.

To contrast, later tonight Ashley, Jelli, Sam and a few other girls convinced me to go country swing dancing. I was a bit wary, as I had only attempted this once with Tommy (he had no idea what he was doing), but agreed to go. It was a lot of fun! I wish I would have gone earlier... It's really fun to be flipped and spinned around like that. I met a few really cool dudes that danced with me. There was one point where I was flying around on a guy's shoulder and looking out at the crowd, and I was like... what the heck am I doing? This is madness! But although it was completely mad, it was completely AWESOME. I love swing dancing.
