We have dancing ... from soon after sundown until a few minutes after nine o’clock.... Occasionally the boys who play the female partners in the dances exercise their ingenuity in dressing to look as girlish as possible. In the absence of lady duds they use leaves, and the leaf-clad beauties often look very pretty and always odd enough.

I was glad to see that Western Square Dancing is listed among the folk dance forms covered by the Folk Dance Association. Too bad several of the articles refer to contra dancing rather than MWSD.

Looking for trivial information about today's date? Trivia at UselessKnowledge.com has it.

I'm going to be a little terse for the next few days; I'm memorizing C3A calls before going to SoCal for the weekend to try to learn C3A. Talk about an exercise in masochism...

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.
