 Folk dance Summary
There are a number of modern dances such as hip hop that evolve spontaneously, but the term "folk dances" is generally not applied to them, and the terms "street dance" or "vernacular dance" are used instead.
The term "folk dances" is reserved for dances which are to a significant degree bound by European tradition and originated in the times when the distinction existed between the dances of "common folk" and the dances of the "high society".
Although folk dancing was historically done by the common people of the local culture, international folk dance has received some popularity on college campuses and community centers within the United States and other countries.

According to new research, the ability to dance may have been a factor in survival for our prehistoric ancestors, who used their moves to bond and communicate with each other when times were tough.
"Dance, like music, is an activity dating to prehistoric times that is sometimes a sacred ritual, sometimes a form of communication, and sometimes an important social and courtship activity," wrote the researchers, who were psychologists based primarily out of universities in Jerusalem.
And, as it is on modern dance floors, their prehistoric moves had a lot to do with hooking up.

 glbtq >> arts >> List, Herbert
List also became an acquaintance of the young Englishman Stephen Spender, who was to draw upon him in creating the character Joachim in his autobiographical novel The Temple (written in 1929, but not published until 1988).
In his early photographs, List combines his love of the male figure with an experimental use of double exposure and a quasi- surrealist fascination with masks and draped fabric.
List's photographs from this period are particularly noteworthy.

 Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice -- Notes on Random Topics
In some cases (depending on the lady's scruples and/or fear of being seen to violate etiquette or fear of giving offense, and the particular circumstances involved), it means she won't dance at all for the rest of the evening.
As is also the case with many other topics, Jane Austen is never explicit on this subject (even if she had wanted to be, it would have been very difficult for someone in her social role -- a never-married "genteel" female living in her family).
At semi-informal dance events (but not really at grand formal balls), if there were more young women than young men, then some of the young women would sometimes dance with each other.
