Dirty dancing and Christian bans

Recommended Posts

I was reading about the history of a 1920s dance called the Bunny Hug and trying to find any videos of the actual dance. There were a few on YouTube, but none that looked like the dance was described, leading me to think they've been sanitized (not surprising for the Lawrence Welk show). The black swing dances of the 30s and 40s were a lot more "hot".

 

But then I found this article by NPR talking about how many dances were banned and people arrested for naughty dancing. It's a reminder of how church "morality" was enforced back then. It remained strong on TV through the 70s, and reared its head again with records in the 80s and 90s.

Well, well. ALL dancing was evil and 'of the devil' when I was a teenager in the 1950's. I hadn't thought about it but I bet my parents went apoplectic when they heard that I was organising 'twist sessions' for teenagers whilst I was ministering abroad.🤩

Do you know why Calvinists are opposed to having sex while standing up?

They're afraid it might lead to dancing.
