i was surprised to hear Ms. Diamond speak in the past tense of the wonderful effects of American Contra Dance! is it possible that she, and you, are not aware that contra dance is thriving today? there is a huge, peripatetic contra community, especially in the southeast. all you need do is look on facebook, it's a major contra meetup! Or search for it on YouTube. Or check out the college scene in Asheville: those kids are amazing! I'm spending a week dancing at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC the week after Christmas, and I can't wait! it provides the same benefits today that she described from the past, now to thousands! (I've attached my own video of last New Year's Eve at Brasstown, and there are dozens of related and favorited videos listed on that page)
