GUEST,Mr Red are new kinds of dance possible? (18) RE: are new kinds of dance possible? 31 Dec 09


As George Bernard Shaw said:

"The golden rule is that there are no golden rules"

But there are a lot of fashions. And they go in cycles. And permutations make it new enough to claim as new and exciting for the young things that have seen so little of life (yet know so much).

I never pogoed but I think you will find the inhabitants of the Masai Mara had ceremonies doing just that way back into unrecorded history. It is just that they probably didn't gob at the musicians.

New dance forms? New to us. What was the hokey cokey but a farndole. The twist looks a lot like Cajun moves I see on archive film without the lateral or longtitudinal progress, or even the need for a partner. And didn't it originate down in that neck of the woods (ish)? Mind you it obviated the need for a handbag to dance around.
