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.
--Rutherford B. Hayes

Here's where I'll be in August: Crosstrail Thru Eugene campsite. Come on out for some camping and dancing!




Here's a list of mailing lists related to various folk dance forms (yes, square dancing is listed...): ListServs on Folk Dancing May 2000




Just for fun: a little drag and drop poetry.




Musical ideas for the day: today is the anniversary of the Mt. St. Helens eruption in 1980 (Blow Your Top Day). Which means it would be a good day to play Volcano (Mountain 118).

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.
