About this Item
- Dancing as a Christian amusement
- This antidance treatise presents three of the central arguments for this genre of literature. First, dance is injurious to the health. Second, dance is a waste of time and money. The third argument recognizes that dance is mentioned in the Bible; however, the author claims that only women danced and solely for religious purposes.
- Heckman, George C., 1825-1902
