What you see above in today´s post is the dance-program for an assembly taking place on Sunday, 1 March. The venue is again the lovely restored Gustavian manor where I attended a ball last summer. My dear Mrs. E. decided to brush the dust off her dance slippers and have her gown pressed and join me! A rare treat! There will be musicians performing on period instruments and, I believe, skilled instructors. The dances are a veritable pot-pourri of English country dances and Swedish/French menuetts and quadrilles. Several are rather advanced, I´m afraid. Only four or five of these are familiar to me, so it will be a (delightful) challenge. Dress code: Period, ca 1800, give or take a decade or so.
Found this clip of La Petite Malice performed by the pros at L´accademie de Menuet:
