17 year old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is on holiday with her family in the Catskill Mountains in the summer of 1963, and bored out of her mind. That is until she encounters charismatic Johnny Castle, who teaches dance at the resort. When Johnny takes her back to the staff's after-hours secret party, she discovers a vibrant underworld of 'dirty dancing'. This rock 'n' roll music is totally at odds with the kind of music that Baby has so far experienced and certainly wouldn't meet with approval from her conservative parents. It's exciting and fresh, and she begins to fall for...

Writing an entry as a guest blogger is like starting a new school mid-year. Sure, I’ve studied the basic subjects, been a member of student council, but this is NEW. This may take some mirror affirmation. Ok. Here goes. (Just picture me looking in a mirror for this next part.)  My name is Meggin and I’m writing for The Mommy Nest. I really, really want you to like me. (Crazy blogger steps away from imaginary mirror.)  Step one, awkward intro: Nailing It. I put on my best dress, smooth down my hair, and strap on my backpack. Adventure, here I come!...
