Elders dance 2015.Wachira John
Finally it’s happened. The reality of leaving school sank well that night. And boy didn’t that happen in style. If you haven’t already realized, I’m talking about the JKUAT CU elder’s dance 2015! (Trumpets, woop woop!) There wasn’t a better place to be that night. If you missed it, chekwa kapsaa, and sorry. But allow me to indulge you.
The night was calm, graced by unusually very sharp elegant folk (finalists) making their way to the main hall for the dance. The men’s dress code was black trousers, a white shirt, a tie or bow tie, or simply a suit. I did the suit because well, apart from numbers I also like suits, a lot! Ladies were required to wear flowing dresses. Whatever color they wanted. I think they had that liberty because they are ladies. No one wants to trust men with color, aye guys? They should try us one of these days. They say they wouldn’t want to play that card with us men or they’d have a color bomb…Sob. The end result was beautiful though. Quintessential!
Don’t they look beautiful?
Very Sharp 🙂
The next part required the elders to come onto the stage in pairs, yes, boy and girl, the best part, while dancing. Not the best for me because I tend to think I have two left feet. Everyone’s gotta have a limitation somewhere, that way the world remains fair and balanced…:) . Biko claims he has a large forehead, he’s good, I’m good, were not complaining. Coming to think of it, I’ve never done anything close to the name dance before an audience before. That status changed that night. Never mind all I did was throw my legs and arms around (I think I did). She thinks I did good, maybe, for starters, I don’t know. It sure was a lot of fun though, excitement clouded the air.
The elders take the floor!
The elder’s choir did the song Asante by Tehila
Then followed a flurry of activities including a sermon by David Ngua. He spoke about keeping the faith. Forewarned that it was easy to lose faith in Christ out there. He further gave some principles that would help stay grounded in the faith in the many years that will follow after campus. I believe that sermon will be made available by the IT team in due time.
Next came the part that most people like, eating…and various presentations, and lots of cakes. We finally took photos and ended the event in prayer. You know what, this story is best told in pictures…I’ll stop right here 🙂
