This study by Kate Van Winkle Keller was first presented at the International Early Dance Institute, Goucher College, Towson, Maryland on June 11, 1989 and published by the Historical Dance Foundation in 1990. It is a landmark essay on social dance in colonial America and 17th- and 18th-century England. Exploring cultural, social, and aesthetic aspects in depth, the author presents compelling new information from rare documents that enlighten this complex topic. This edition is illustrated with period engravings, diagrams, and dance instructions. A chronological summary of references to social dance instruction in America from 1706 to 1796 and seventy-seven endnotes support and document the text. A fully annotated bibliography is divided into two sectons, "Background, Bibliographies, and Indexes" and "Practical Editions."
