In the ballroom of the 19th century, a new dance generally caused a bit of a scandal. Around 1810, the Waltz was still considered “wicked” on account of the intimate contact between the dancers.

Ladies might become dizzy, risking to fall or worse, contract pneumonia after working up a sweat. 1840 is the year that the polka had its big breakthrough, with talk at the time of an outbreak of 'polkamania'. Some time later, around 1860 the cancan had its moment, a wild dance performed by bawdy girls, but determined dancers aspired to copy it in the ballrooms. We mix these manic dances with stately polonaises, quadrilles and contradances to keep the evening in balance.
