There was an old clerk of Columbus
Who wearied of totalling numbus,
    So he moved to East Lansing
    And spent his time dancing
Maxixes, merengues, and rhumbus.
--Col. G. L. Sicherman
Contra dance categorization
April 29, 2004

Here's an interesting thread on rec.folk-dancing, dealing with categorizing contra (and other) dances. Someone has a database of contra dances (this sounds familiar, I have one also), and is looking for a way to find "similar" dances within the database. Check it out: Characterizing Contra Dances.

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.
