Dance Derivations – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

When you attend a musical show or revue, and witness the girls in a simultaneous dance number, while under the spell of good snappy music, the chances are it may r:ever enter your mind as to the meaning and derivation cf the various dance movements, arm wavings, kicks and marching steps. It is most likely that you will simply classify all this as dancing, and give no thought at all to the probable meaning and origination of the dance nomenclature.
