A Dance with Jane Austen: How a Novelist and her Characters Went to the Ball
"There were only twelve dances, of which I danced nine, and was merely prevented from dancing the rest by want of a partner..." Letter to Cassandra, 20th November 1800
If you have been enchanted by the many occasions Jane Austen's characters have attended balls, and the plot developments that have ensued this is a book that you will need to read. Balls provided an actual opportunity for the younger members of society to meet and dance with a certain gentleman or lady who had caught their eye. Many a romance or heartache could begin here. This book provides an insight into the subject of dance and describes all the dances Jane herself and her characters practiced.
