Artistic conveyance of the
beauty of the ballerina

From Abby Rhodes 


  Ken R.:

"Hard to read the description on the back of this photo from 1932, but it looks like the name of this pretty lady is Dorothy Jordan. We get to enjoy seeing her dressed  in a lovely gown for some kind of performance.  She’s described as a folk singer. The photographer signed in the lower right is Don Diego. The artists at the newspapers frequently touch up photos for publication - I guess so they’ll show up better when printed in the newspaper.  I usually like to clean off any markings but this time the artist did such a good job that I decided to leave this photo as is."

More on legacy square dancing from Crinolyn:

"Back then the 'Square Dance' was a cross between Clogging and Square Dancing.  'Modern Square Dancing' sort of evolved
from there, as a lot could not keep up with the rapid pace and Clogging seemed to evolve with 'taps' on shoes, maybe derived
from tap dancing. Today's modern square dance is more like a brisk walk.

"There is also 'Round Dancing', which seemed to evolve from or to imitate ballroom dancing, but is performed in a ring with all
participants cued to steps they would perform.

"Of course, there are demonstration dances, mostly performed by teens, examples:"

"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.
