Now we've all exorcised ourselves again over Ceilidh vs Country surely
the point is that Ceilidh is where non dancers most often come into
contact with some form of "traditional" dance. It may be a wedding , a
work function, a fund raiser or a conference. It therefore must be
regarded as a potential place of contact where potential Country Dancers
can be "enticed".
If the majority of Country Dancers are running around avowing Ceilidh is
uncouth ,dangerous, arrhythmic or whatever so they don't do it while at
the same time the participants of the Ceilidhs are having a ball ,and
generally surviving unscathed, then there is little hope of developing
new interest in Country Dancing in these loci. Dressing up in elbow
length white gloves and sweaty black jackets isn't likely to do the
business.
