Civil War Dancing
DVD Available Now!!
PART I – A CIVIL WAR BALL
Ladies and gentlemen in period attire swirl around the beautiful rotunda of the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg, Pa., to the music of the Fort Delaware Cornet Band. Each dance is shot from floor level and above to better show the formations, moves, and synchronization of the dances.
Dances at the Ball: Grand March, Soldier’s Joy, Lancer's Quadrille 1st Figure, German Waltz, Money Musk Reel, Sicilian Circle, Lancer's Quadrille 3rd Figure, Virginia Reel, Tempest, Lancer's Quadrille 5th Figure, Gothic Dance, Spanish Waltz, Empire Quadrille, Swedish Dance, Waltz Quadrille, and La Boulangere.
PART II – DANCE INSTRUCTION
In the instructional part, filmed at the Cumberland County Historical Society in Carlisle, Pa., dancers in modern attire (so moves can easily be seen) demonstrate moves used in dances, including various turns, circles, stars, chains, promenades, and pass throughs. The counts are shown on the screen as each move is described in detail. The dancer couples are in the same color tops to better see who is interacting with whom. We also demonstrate five complete dances: First Figure of the Lancer’s Quadrille, Tempest, Money Musk Reel, Spanish Waltz, and German Waltz.
Included on the DVD is a 38 page PDF dance manual with written descriptions of the dances and information about Civil War era dancing.
