Controversial Teen Dance Crazes That Pissed Off Parents

The Waltz (1800s)
In 1816,The Times of London alerted parents about an “indecent foreign dance” called the waltz, which featured “the voluptuous intertwining of the limbs” and “close compressure of the bodies.” This “obscene display” sparked a panic that caused the Times to “warn every parent against exposing his daughter to so fatal a contagion” that previously remained the territory of “prostitutes and adulteresses.” Yes, this was written about the waltz.

Okay goths of the internet why is no one talking about Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty? It’s a Victorian/Goth interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, with a vampire-fairy plot twist that worked very, very well. I’ve never been so emotionally engaged by a ballet. If its run didn’t end in a week I’d call it a must-see. 

That looks STUNNING. And mmmm, red brocade. 

WOW
