One need not be an anthropologist or a cultural historian to remark that social dancing these days seems to isolate the individual in a trance-like self-absorption which virtually disconnects him from the world and even from his partner.

All of the square dance email lists I'm on have been very quiety lately, as has rec.folk-dancing. And I obviously haven't been writing lately. I wonder if it's the war...

The war hasn't stopped my dancing, however. T-B and I traveled to Becket, Massachusetts, for the LCFD Dance Camp, with Lisa Greenleaf calling and the Groovemongers playing.

This weekend, we danced A2 to Darryll Lipscomb on Friday, and we're going to a contra dance featuring one of our favorite bands, Bayou Seco and caller Lausanne Allen, a caller from Vermont.

I'm sorry, but I've had to disable comments. Spambots have found the site, and I don't have time to try to figure out how to stop them. In the future, I'll probably start using some standard blogging software that I can modify to add the dance quotes. In the meantime, no comments.
