I do not dance. II once took ballroom dancing lessons for about four months, but I found that it took a long time for a message from my brain to reach my feet, by which time the music had moved on. It didn't help either that I had a partner who from time to time, as I was clumsily maneuvering her around the floor, would say, "Feste, I'm bored." Wimmin! Hee, hee. Feste, even you could dance as well as that wild flash mob in the town square there. And, I would have thought your dance partner wouldn't have been bored, she would have been too busy avoiding your feet! ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Contra Dancing too in Fairfield, Iowa Contra Dance Flash Mob Fairfield, IA, video #1 Contra Dance Flash Mob Fairfield, IA, video #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OMh__1dvZI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OMh__1dvZI Contra Dance Flash Mob Fairfield, IA, video #1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OMh__1dvZI Contra dance flash mob in Fairfield, IA at the May 2014 Artwalk.

Club square dancing in America generally has been in long decline but what has happened is a marvel that square dancing has erupted [revived] more recently in Fairfield as a vehicle of social interaction. The rote form seems to appeal to the white collar demographic within the meditating community. An aspect different here from larger [anonymous] urban America now is that Fairfield, Iowa meditators are a recognizable community in their own way. Meditators as a group have a communal demographic in a way that America is not as communal as it may have been earlier in the 20th Century whence square dancing was integral to rural social fabrics.

Was a big social thing that was hosted on campus for years until they started removing people's Dome meditation badges that included/ allowed meditators in to the group meditations and movement meetings. With their administration [exclusion] of old meditators from the Domes and campus events the music and dancing of the larger meditating community moved off campus from those times.
