Walther's book on "Dance and Theater" ("Tanz und Theaterbesuch")

In the last post, the subject of Modern Dance was introduced.  C.F.W. Walther had a book published that addressed both Dance and Theater in great detail.  I have just spent some time getting the text of the German language book into digital format –a PDF file is here . The title page is here.
As far as I know, there is no published English translation of this text yet. But here is a rough partial translation using Google Translate and my best estimate of Walther's meaning:
     Dance and Theater  (<<--download)
by C.F.W. Walther
(or Tanz and Theaterbesuch)

This English translation can be read with discernment even with it's flaws.  A careful reading shows Walther's pastoral heart... something today's LC-MS would rather not face since it does not agree with Walther (or Luther or the Bible.)  See my next post about this.
