The upbeat, syncopated, toe-tapping music of the Hustle
is irresistible to contemporary dancers
a Work of Satan
On the dance floor, the Gentleman is boss
Reflect on your strange conduct
the popular Lady as a rule knows the dance patterns
It is important to perfect good posture early in your dancing
there needs but One Dissolute Hour, to ruine in you
When the psychologist said "dance,"
a number of trainees immediately said,
Behold joy and gladness,
slaying oxen, and killing sheep,
eating flesh, and drinking wine:
Tomorrow we shall die.
Foxtrot, Waltz, Salsa, Swing,
Rumba, Tango, Samba/Bossa Nova, Merengue,
Disco, Lambada, Macarena.
Perfidy, Forgery, Disloyalty
Let us walk honestly but not in RIOTING
Raise your heels slightly off the floor
A man must be either Drunk, or Mad,
that is fond of Dancing
Doesn't it arouse a regular rhythmic pulse in you?
Good dancing never compensates for poor manners
No matter how unfavorably you regard your partner's dancing,
never try to wrest the lead away from him

and They go down the Grave into Hell
Meet the stern, silent, stone-faced male
and the frosty, forbidding female
A man dancing with his hand upon a lady's waist?
No proper young maiden would compromise herself so.
The Bump is most effective when the partners move in such a way
that their hips actually "bump" each other
& Publick Meetings of People of Different Sexes,
such are BALLS, and Playes
the scourge of Ecclesiastical Discipline
should be employed upon Dancers
In the midst of the greatest period of dance evolution
in American history
the Tango made its appearance.
