Round dancing, by M. B. Gilbert ...

Gilbert, M. B. 1847-1910. (Melvin Ballou),

CREATED/PUBLISHED
Portland, Me., M. B. Gilbert [c1890]

SUMMARY
Gilbert, a well-known dancing master, notes that his book will deal only with round dances, and for other dances or rules of etiquette, the reader should turn elsewhere. After a brief discussion of the positions of the feet, the author discusses, in some length, the waltz position. The manual gives the directions for a large number of waltz, polka, galop, redowa, and mazurka variations--many of which are not described in other contemporary dance literature.
