Miraculous Ladybug - Love Square Week Day Two: Bonding
What better way to bond than try some dancing? Of course, I did this while talking to a few people and thinking about how I need to work on Secret Santa stuff, BUUUT here it is and I’ve caught up so I’ll give myself a little more time for Day Three. See you with Secrets with MariChat.
The November 1950 issue of “Sets in Order” the ‘Magazine of Western Square Dancing’, featuring cover art by Chuck Jones. Chuck and his wife, Dorothy, along with several other members of his unit and their wives spent a great deal of time square dancing, traveling around the Southwest for dance tournaments. Chuck Jones contributed many cover illustrations over the years to this magazine.
There’s a long-standing tradition of Americans taking a silly bit of Irish culture and pretending it’s theirs just because one of their ancestors died in the potato famine. But what they never realize is that that kind appropriation can cut both ways. Colin Farrell, the most Irish of Irish actors, can attest to that, because he spent a brief spell of his early life introducing the Emerald Isle to the joy of line dancing.
Line dancing, ironically the most square of all dances, actually traces its origin all the way back to European country dancing, but you can’t look at Farrell in his sleeveless studded vest and black choker and think that he’s taking line dancing back for the motherland. As a 19-year-old aspiring actor, Farrell basically had the choice between being a waiter and, strangely, a line dancer – which paid a lot better. So until his big Irish break about two years later (which, fantastically, was in a movie called Falling For A Dancer) he earned a really good living touring nightclubs across Ireland and clutching his belt to some good ol’ country and western music. And, much to Farrell’s regret, someone got it on tape. Bless their heart.
Once they’d all had way too much to drink, it was fairly easy for the other girls to convince Ryleigh to ignore her neighbour’s complaints about making noise and take the party outside.
Wandering about the small town in the pajamas at somewhere past midnight was strangely liberating and they ended up kicking off their slippers and socks, rolling up their pants and jumping into the fountain in the middle of the town square to dance in the water.
