Dance Craze

Oct 18, 2013

Interest in various dance crazes is not restricted only to the present generation.  The following admonition was printed in 1825 in The Saturday Evening Post:

“I am not sure whether excelling in this does not inspire too great a fondness for dissipating pleasures...in its immoderate extremes, transporting the mind beyond the rational medium of gentle agitation.” 

Do you think that still applies?
