2 "40s" deep
the belvedere. a music "venue". one with no cover charge. no bouncers. no adults. no permission i.e., no permit from the city to utilize this little white gazebo down by the river in pre-"vitalized" downtown Little Rock.
no inhibitions? pretty much.
there was almost always, at least, a little dancing at belvedere punk shows. sometimes a lot.
quite a few different styles of dancing were represented.
some were mature outward manifestations of inward sexual dynamics through the art of dance. most were not. by far not.
there were plenty of comical dance inventions created out of pure enthusiasm. boredom too. there was the "guy pushing a lawn mower dance". "the eating a bowl of cereal". reenactments of bar fights from movies. there was the occasional dog pile(not really a dance), the wilting flower, "interpretive" dance. there were others. many others.
i wish a lot of "us" folks that danced so much back in the day still did so today.
older "butt" wiser?!
