Keep On Dancing

After forty-five minutes of dancing the bell rang. The dancers left the dance floor and slowly headed for the beds in the next room. Fifteen minutes later, the bell rang again and the weary dancers straggled back to the dance floor. All day and all night, the same dancers continued to dance. Weeks passed and they kept on dancing. They were called dance marathons and people were crazy about them in the 1930s. In the longest marathon, the dancing went on for 5,148 hours or nearly 215 days. It was just after the stock market crash of 1929 in the United States. The Great Depression that followed affected everyone, and thousands of people were out of jobs. For some young people, entering a dance marathon was simply a way to earn money for food. As long as they continued to dance, they got food to eat.

The first 500 hours of a dance marathon were the most difficult. Dancers had to get used to sleeping while leaning on their partners. Feet got sore and swollen, and tempers flared as dancers got tired. Three times a day, tables were pulled out onto the dance floor and the dancers ate while dancing.

For many people, watching a dance marathon was. a cheap form of en­tertainment. At any time of day or night they could go and watch the dancers in the marathon. They yelled and threw money at their favorite dancers to encourage them to keep dancing. Some made bets on who would quit or fall down next.     

Dancers in a marathon were pushed to their limits. Without proper sleep, many got sick. When several dancers died from overexertion in а І929 dance marathon, government officials tried unsuccessfully to outlaw marathons. Instead, marathons continued to be popular until the United States entered World War II. The wartime economy brought the country out of the Depression and people finally began to loose interest in dance marathons.

Text 1.

            It may have been the cold, wet evening that made stepping into Double Bass such a pleasure. After all, during Kyiv’s miserable winters, anywhere warm and dry is welcome. But after the hostess relieved me of my coat and hat and I had taken my seat, the impression remained: here is an inviting, comfortable spot designed for relaxation.

            Double Bass Blue’s Bar is one of the newest additions to Podil’s expanding entertainment scene. Just a block north of Al Capone Night Club, Double Bass is located in a basement space with the entrance around the corner of Vvedenska , rather than Kostyantynivska as the address implies. The bar’s bright neon sign will lead you there. The staff is cordial, and well trained, the menus are cleverly designed and printed in English and Ukrainian, and the owners have gone to great-length with the décor, exploiting the blues bar theme to good effect. The walls are covered with instruments: saxophones and trumpets and polished violins, accompanied by sheet music and photographs. Even the furniture has a musical theme, with one booth stitched to look like a piano keyboard.

Text 3                              Health Tips for Travelers

by Sam Morrison

Travel is fun and exciting, but not if you get sick. You may think, "Not me. I won't get sick on my vacation!" However, for many people, that is what happens. You do not want to spend your vacation sick in bed, of course. If you have heart trouble, you do not want to make it worse. What can you do to slay in good health? These arc the three things to remember when you travel: relax, sleep, arid cat well.               '

A vacation is supposed to be a time for relaxing, but tourists often forget that. There are so many places to visit: museums, churches, parks, and shops. You want to see as much as possible, of course, and so you spend most of your days on your feet. This is tiring. Your feet may start to hurt. You may get a headache or a backache. If this is the way you feel, you should take a rest. Do not ask your body to do too much. A tired body means a weak body, and a weak body gets sick easily. So sit down for a few hours in a nice spot. In good weather, look for a quiet park bench or an outdoor cafe. You can learn a lot by watching people while you rest.

Sleep is also important. If you want to stay healthy, you need to get enough sleep. That is not always easy when you are traveling. You may have a noisy hotel room or an uncomfortable bed. If you do, don't be afraid to change rooms or even hotels. If you are young, you may have other reasons for not sleeping, in many cities the nightlife is exciting. You may want to stay out late at night. Then you should plan to sleep during the day That extra rest can make a big difference.

Finally, whatever age you are, you must eat well. That means eating the right kinds of foods. Your body needs fresh fruits and vegetables and some meat, milk, or fish. You also need to be careful about eating new foods. Try small amounts first to make sure they are okay for you. And of course, stay away from foods that are very rich.

Remember this: If you want to enjoy your vacation, take care of yourself. Give your body some rest. Get enough sleep and eat good, healthy food.
