Some people see: >> a bunch of guys in desert camo pants and desert boots, four >> wearing red t-shirts and four blue t-shirts, dancing.
You see: >> a bunch of guys with tight buttocks in camouflage >> trousers and a T-shirts to emphasize their muscles.
I still haven't received my copy of the magazine, but if it carries a good
photo on the front cover of handsome people dancing, I look forward to
seeing it. Young/old male/female.
It is probably true that there is a higher proportion of gays in SCD. That
applies to all of the arts. It certainly applies to all of dancing, from
ballroom to ballet. So what.
I take pleasure in watching a well-executed pas-de-Basque. Especially when
danced by a male, perhaps for the rarity value.
And when it comes to Highland dancing, it has to be a man.
Many Scottish Country dances are not gender-specific, and I don't have a
problem dancing as a lady if numbers are imbalanced. Rather that, than sit
out a dance. (I usually get it wrong, but that's another matter).
One thing about SCD I do find camp is the concept of 'covering'.
This means simpering at other dancers because you are where you should be if
you had listened to the music.
