Patri Pugliese
Dances for The Civil War Ballroom B 289
Dances for The Civil War Ballroom
A Manual of Dance Instruction to accompany "The Civil War Ballroom recording" by Spare Parts.

This pocket manual supplies instructions for all the dances on The Civil War Ballroom recording by Spare Parts, also the dance music in The Civil War Ballroom Band Book.

Included are the most fashionable mid-nineteenth-century dances:
waltz, polka, schottische, polka redowa, galop, Grand March, Soldier’s Joy, Gothic Dance, Spanish Dance, La Têmpete, The Lancers Quadrilles (figures 1, 3, and 5), and the Virginia Reel. It provides detailed explanations, plus abbreviated calls for the set dances.

To help recreate a Victorian ball, the manual also includes "Etiquette of the Ballroom" and "A Note on Ballroom Refreshments."

Patri Pugliese was a dance historian and teacher who drafted these instructions to help reenactors and people of all ages recreate a midcentury Victorian ball. The project was interrupted by Patri Pugliese's untimely death in February of 2007. With Barbara Pugliese's approval, Liz Stell and Bill Matthiesen have undertaken to format and publish this volume in the style of the mid-nineteenth century dance manuals that served as Patri's sources.

Small hardbound volume (4.5" x 6.75"); 110 pages with period illustrations.

Dances for Jane Austen DHDS JA2011
Dances for Jane Austen
Jane Austen's brother Henry recorded that 'Jane was fond of dancing, and excelled in it'. The ballroom and assembly scenes in her novels were based on first-hand experience, but she rarely specified the dances. The selection given here goes a little closer to the dances she knew, particularly by making fuller use of the Austen family music books than before. It includes a selection of cotillons and country dances from the ballroom repertoire.

Polonese Russe, The Perigordine, Savage Dance, The Gloucester Waltz, The Family Party, The Muff, Royal Chace, Les Ombres Chinois, La Jesuite, Les Belles Filles de Norwich, La Pastorelle, La Charmante Irlandoise, The College Hornpipe, The Charity Boy, Countess of Yarmouth's Fancy, Jackey Tarr.

Based on material developed for Summer School 2011 by Anne Daye (dances) and Ian Cutts (music)

Kate van Winkle Keller and George A. Fogg
Contra Dances from New Hampshire, 1783 B 7777
Contra Dances from New Hampshire, 1783
Contra Dances from New Hampshire 1783 by Kate van Winkle Keller and George A. Fogg (October 2012) is the latest from The Colonial Music Institute press. This book is an interpretation of the fifty-five dances written down by one Clement Weeks, a 33-year-old schoolteacher in Greenland, New Hampshire. In February 1783, just a few months before the Treaty of Paris would end the Revolutionary War, Weeks began writing out “Figures for Contra Dances,” thirty-five of them, the authors point out, “from a collection from a friend named Smith” and another twenty chosen by Weeks himself. Keller and Fogg, both expert dance historians, interpreted each set of dance figures and, using the titles in the Weeks manuscript, located the music intended for them. Thus, each dance, is written out in modern notation and coupled with its facsimile from Weeks’ manuscript. Facsimiles are provided for most of the tunes as well. That plus the front matter, comprising a history of Weeks and his manuscript and an explanation of “Contra Vs Country,” plus the back matter (“Formation,” glossary, and bibliography), makes for a book packed with information – and not just for dancers, either.

For those of us with an interest in Ancient history, the Contra Dances from New Hampshire demonstrates how easily dance music could become march music. At this time, both fifers and dancers required uncluttered music with two strong pulsations per measure in order to know which foot should be where at each musical measure. These indications of foot placement were just as important to soldiers marching in formation as they were to the ladies and gentlemen footing it on the dance floor, proven by the fact that about half of Weeks’ dance music is also found in the manuscript march collections kept by fifers in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
