DANCE FIRST, THINK LATER

A friend, who should have known better, once in a moment of complete brain death, tried to lure me into lessons at a dance school. Whilst having no problem whatsoever disconnecting my brain from the rest of my body and letting myself completely go to a nice tune, the thought alone of going to another school out of my own free will in an attempt to become the next Fred Astaire, once an amateur himself, raised the hairs on my forearm and I was lost to the art of dance forever.

May I have this dance? Clockwise from top left corner: French illustrator Loustal's dancing couple, Robert Wagt's "it takes two to Tango", Ben Javens' couple dancing to a record player, Tom of Finland's gay dancing couple, Norman Rockwell steps on toes at this party dance, whilst an unknown artist made this poster of a Zoot couple for hotfootstomp, the inevitable Sempe's ballet lessons, american cartoonist Jules Feiffer's couple blend into each other, Kirsten Sims and a vintage illustration of a couple of frogs dancing, artist unknown.
