Dances for the Sun King: B 217
Dances for the Sun King:
André Lorin’s “Livre de Contredance” (1685-87) is a collection of thirteen social dances from the 1680s, ordered by and presented to King Louis XIV of France. At the King’s direction, Lorin collected dances in England and comments that while the English used any step they chose for their dancing, he specifies exactly which step is to be performed for every beat of the music in each dance. This is the earliest document showing and clearly explaining the new steps recently developed in the Academie Royal de Danse, of which Lorin was a member. Published here for the first time, this edition features a complete facsimile of the manuscript, with translations of the text and a full reconstruction of each section of the dance on the facing page. Extensive background essays, full explanations of the notated steps, concordances, and biographies and portraits of the courtiers to whom the dances were dedicated fill out the volume.

Dance and Its Music in America: 1528-1789 B 218
Dance and Its Music in America: 1528-1789
Beginning with Toya Indian dances in Florida and the Matachines dance-drama in the Southwest, and moving to ordination balls, pantomimes, Black election celebrations and country dances called “Burgoyne’s Surrender” and “Washington’s Resignation,”—this study presents dance in the North American lands that would become the United States of America as a powerful yet ephemeral medium of communication and social dynamics. It integrates the history of dance and its music into cultural, commercial, and aesthetic aspects of life in the New World, both for established native societies and newcomers.

Special topics include dance as a metaphor and preparation for battle, Yankee peddlers of dance and their publications, French connections, Spanish influences, dance on board ships, in religion and in the military, and Negro jigs, the Virginia Reel, and mumming traditions. Included is the colorful history of theatrical dancers who performed on the boards from Portsmouth to Charleston and competitive dancers in early versions of today’s Scottish games. The core of the book is a state-by-state narrative of dance and dance music in each colony or territory from Maine to California. Thoroughly documented with extensive period quotations, illustrations, footnotes, bibliography and a detailed index, this study integrates much new information with a new way of looking at dance as a phenomenon that was both re-creative and manipulative, commercial and personal, and pleasurable and painful to those who participated.

The Richmond Assemblies, 1790-1797 B 896h
The Richmond Assemblies, 1790-1797
Social Dances from 18th-Century Virginia.
The Richmond Assemblies were founded soon after the seat of Virginia's government moved from Williamsburg to Richmond in 1780. Government officials, lawyers,and other professional, crowded into the town. Social events like balls and celebrations helped the newcomers meet and blend with the local gentry and their families. By 1783 a group of Richmond gentlemen had decided to share, the expenses of a series of dancing parties. Admission to the group was by invitation--only the elite of town, could hope to attend and through the assemblies make contacts, meet prospective spouses, gain business, and increase their visibility in the community. Minor merchants, tradesmen, and apprentices were not welcome at the Assemblies. They had to satisfy themselves with public dances at local taverns where they could meet women and enjoy more informal social interactions.
As with any group, ground rules were needed and the rules for the Richmond Assemblies for 1790 were printed before the season began so they could be circulated among the members once the opening date was decided upon. More rules were added in 1797 and the scribe of these rules folded into them two more pieces of paper with fourteen country dances written on them. In this book the Assembly rules are discussed and the 1797 dances have been reconstructed for today's dancers to enjoy.

“No Kissing Allowed in School” A Virginia Dancing School in 1784
Dance instructions and music with chords 18th-century dance techniques.
Period illustrations.
This new collection of country dances appeared on a broadside advertisement issued by Capt. Benjamin Walker in Lunenburg, Virginia in 1784. Walker’s class of teenage dancers were of Scottish and English origin and his dances reflect both traditions of social dance. Walker drew his repertory from the latest fashions in London and Edinburgh but he modified them for his rural Virginia patrons. The broadside was a textbook for his students—they learned manners from his rules for the school and they learned to dance tracks, to phrase their movements, and to perform more complex figures as he introduced ever more difficult dances. Walker’s dances have proven very popular at pilot programs across the United States. The authors have located the original music and reconstructed Walker’s dances as they would have been performed in 1784. The book includes many illustrations of pages from old dance collections, portraits of those named in the titles, and a full section on modern and period country dance technique.
