leeneia What's a Buckdancer? (50) RE: What's a Buckdancer? 08 Sep 18

Here's a youtube video with old-timers demonstrating buck dancing:

In 1976, somebody wrote a book about English (or maybe New England) country dancing in honor of America's centennial. I still remember two points from that book.

1. In the opinion of the old-timers, the dancing has become faster and faster as time passes.

2. Because of the speed, special steps and individual moves added to a dance, such as the buck and wing, have been forgotten.

I now play for country dance, and I agree it goes too fast. I see so many people who try it once and go away discouraged.
