  • 1856 The fashionable dancer's casket; or The ball-room instructor ... By Charles Durang

    Although Charles Durang was a well-known Philadelphia dancing teacher and the son of famed American dancer John Durang, very little of this manual originates from the pen of the author. He acknowledges that the dances contained in the book are by the "celebrated teachers of Paris and London." Additionally, the sections on etiquette, deportment, and dress stem from "Mrs. Henderson's treatise." The manual includes descriptions of the popular ballroom dances of the day--quadrilles, polka, waltz, schottisch, gorlitza, and Cellarius waltz.

チャールズ・デュランはフィラデルフィアの著名なダンス教師であり、名声を博した米国のダンサーの子息であったが、このマニュアルのほんの一部しか著者の筆によるものはない。彼自身、「この本の中のダンスは、パリとロンドンの著名な教師たちによるものである」と認めている。また、エチケット、行儀、および服装に関する章は「Mrs. Henderson's treatise」からのものである。このマニュアルは、当時人気のあったボールルームダンス(カドリール、ポルカ、ワルツ、ショティーシュ、ゴーリッツア、そしてセラリウスワルツ)についての記載を含んでいる。

  • 1862 American dancing master, and ball-room prompter; containing about five hundred dances

    This is one of several manuals credited to the well-known American inventor, Elias Howe. Like many nineteenth-century dance manuals, it is a compilation of other sources and assembled by a publisher. The book begins with a brief description of etiquette of the ballroom and continues with information on the supper room and how to arrange balls. The work also discusses many popular group dances including the quadrille, country dance, and German or parlor cotillon as well as round dances--polka, schottisch, esmeralda, polka redowa, and zingerilla.

この本は米国の有名な発明家Elias Howeに認められたいくつかのマニュアルの中の一つである。他の数多くの19世紀のダンスマニュアルのように、出版社によって他の文献から集められ、編集されたものである。この本は、ボールルームでのエチケットの簡単な説明で始まり、ダイニングルームおよび舞踏会のアレンジの方法に関する情報で続けている。またこの著作では、ラウンドダンス(ポルカ、ショティーシュ、エスメラルダ、ポルカ・レドワ、およびツィンガリラ)のほかにもグループダンス(カドリール、カントリーダンス(Tama注:コントラダンスのことか?)、ジャーマン(パーラー・コティリョン))を含んでいる。

  • 1878 How to dance. A complete ball-room and party guide. Containing all the latest figures

    Designed for people who never learned to dance either because of bashfulness or lack of time or money, this manual covers the bare necessities of dress, introductions, and general etiquette. Descriptions are also provided for the quadrille, schottisch, polka redowa, waltz, and several country dances. The manual concludes with rules for the supper room and advice to waltzers.

    This manual contains directions for dances that were popular during at the end of the nineteenth century, including the Berline, Badoise polka, and Les Patineurs. Botallo also includes directions for several specialty dances such as "La Marocaine" and "Danse des Tambourins." The author includes many quadrille and cotillon figures, although neither dance was often performed in the ballroom by 1912. Acknowledging that other dances were more popular, the author includes three figures for a Tango-Argentine.

このマニュアルは、19世紀末において人気のあったBerline, Badoise polka, Les Patineursを含んでいる。著者はまたいくつかの特別なダンス("La Marocaine" and "Danse des Tambourins)についての踊り方を記載している。また多くのカドリールとコティリヨンのフィガーについても記載しているが、これらは1912年までにはどのダンスもボールルームではそれほど頻繁に踊られることはなくなった。著者はそれ以外のダンスが人気があることを認め、あるアルゼンチンタンゴのための三つのフィガーについて記載している。

    This is one of the most valuable dance manuals for the study of social dance practices during the ragtime era. The manual is enhanced by twenty six photographs of several important exhibition dance teams (for example, Irene and Vernon Castle; Maurice and Florence Walden). More than thirty steps are described including the one step, tango, Brazilian maxixe, and the hesitation waltz.



  • 1914 Dances of to-day, by Albert W. Newman

    Declaring his book to be the "absolute authorities on modern dancing," Newman describes a large selection of the most popular ragtime dances including the Castle Walk, Castle Glide, one step, horse trot, tango, maxixe, and lame duck. The manual is enhanced with line drawings and photographs and contains music for the "Newman Tango."

    Written by one of the most famous exhibition ballroom teams of the century, the manual covers a large variety of dances popular during the ragtime era, including the tango, one step, hesitation waltz, and maxixe. A large portion of the book is devoted to grace and etiquette, appropriate dance dresses for women, and music. Many photographs of the famous couple enhance the manual.

  • 1916 The modern dance; a historical and analytical treatment of the subject

    This is the second published edition of a sermon Ham delivered as part of an evangelistic campaign in Palestine, Texas in 1914, and his arguments are typical of this genre of antidance literature. Although Ham and other writers recognize dance in the Bible, it was interpreted as only danced by women, never in closed rooms, and never at night. Also typical of this type of manual, the author includes a list of other denunciations from Catholic, Jewish, and Episcopal church leaders. And, in an unusual addition, Ham includes an attack against social dance written by famed ballerina, Lydia Lupokova. Ham, in his colorful language, notes he has published this warning to "save many young men and women from one of Satan's most fetching appeals to the lust of the flesh."

  • 1920 Handbook of ball-room dancing, by Paymaster-Commander A. M. Cree

    This manual is designed as a self-teacher for those who cannot or, according to the author, are unwilling to attend dance classes. Additionally, Cree declares the most popular dances to be the Lame Duck Valse, valse, one step, foxtrot, and lancers. Although he includes instructions for a Three Step or Straight Jazz, and a Tango Valse, the manual does not reflect dances that were being performed during the late teens.

  • 1921 The modern dance and what shall take its place

    This manual consists of a sermon presented at Saint Luke's Lutheran Church, on 13 February 1921 in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. This antidance work argues that dance is injurious to the health, is usually accompanied by drinking alcohol, and forces young men to stray from serious reflection and prayer. Typical of this genre of literature, the book contains testimonials from numerous denominations including the Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church, Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church, and Methodist Church.

  • 1921 The social dance, by Dr. R. A. Adams

    This antidance treatise is divided into four parts. The first part discusses the physical effects of the dance, and the author concludes that habitual dancers are sick more often and that women are more prone to "female weaknesses." The second section focuses on the dangers of dance on the mind and concludes that many girls fail in school because they dance too much. In the third section, the author argues that dance is immoral and "fires the passions of young women." The concluding section is devoted to detailing passages in the Scriptures that the author interprets as supporting his arguments.

  • 1922 Dancing made easy, by Charles J. Coll and Gabrielle Rosiere

    This is an expanded version of Coll's book that was originally published c. 1919. Beginning with an account of dance history ranging from the ancient Greeks to late nineteenth-century dance, Coll declares that some of "most up to the minute dances" include the Carter Waltz and the Schottisch Espagnole. The author also discusses foxtrot variations and the Virginia Reel, and provides some cotillon figures (also known as the German). The dances described by Coll were long out of fashion by 1922.
