The Bunny Hug
is another one of those Ragtime Animal Dances
It is near the top of the list of dances condemned by manuals of the period, for being lewd, ugly, socially unacceptable, and otherwise leading to eternal damnation.
It is also near the bottom of the list of dances actually described by manuals of the period.
The Bunny Hug is really just a hold, rather than a style or a step. Instead of a standard ballroom position, both people wrap their arms around the other in a hugging hold, and then dance the One Step as usual.
Quite pleasant, but most One Step Variations are difficult or impossible in this position.
