Telling the story of one perfect night when Sallie, Beau, and their family and friends dropped their cares and came together for some foot-tapping action, this rollicking tale re-creates the excitement of the dance hall. Set in the not-too-distant past, the story reveals the dance hall as the hub of the community in rural areas, a place where people of all ages gathered together to share news, enjoy each other's company, and support each other in trying times.
