Lets have a Ball......


Victorian Dancing Etiquette

"One should be scrupulous and not wound the prejudices of a friend by sending her an invitation to a ball when it is well known she is conscientiously opposed to dancing."

Dance with grace and modesty, neither affect to make a parade of your knowledge; refrain from great leaps and ridiculous jumps, which would attract the attention of all towards you....

Oh this is so beautiful. Dancing was a passion of me when I was young. I am going on holiday soon so I won't visit for a while but will surely be back next year.
Prettige feestdagen en tot volgend jaar Doei marja

Wouldn't it be great fun if we could just step back into time. These were such refined days...
