160 years ago today - Jan 24, 1862

The President [Brigham Young] made a few remarks about dancing he wished some attention to be paid to doing well, he said he liked all things done well; mentioned that some of the brethren rested too much on the ladies, which would sometimes give them pain. The President went on to describe the general rules of dancing, mentioned that many of the brethren who had attended dancing schools, were yet unacquainted with their positions. -- Salt Lake City
