EndIgnorance, i'm sorry, but that's complete BS now. whatever cultural significance those dances may have had is gone now. you think the mommas know why they used to dance like that? i KNOW the babies don't know why they used to dance like that.
i'm New Orleans born and raised. left for katrina and was back within weeks working there through commute, then living there a couple months later. i love my city, but i won't make excuses. i don't care what the dance USED to represent. i know what it CURRENTLY represents. and you can be damn sure if i had a daughter, she'd know better than to try it
