Quadrille - J. Scott Skinner, 1905
The People’s Ball Room Guide, published by musician James Scott Skinner in 1905, is a description of 19th century ballroom dances.
A website devoted to Skinner's work includes a series of videos illustrating quadrilles and Lancers set to Scottish tunes and danced in Scottish style.
Skinner himself was taught to dance by William Scott; the two men collaborated on an earlier work, A Guide To Fashionable Dancing," which collects quadrille variations from the early 1980s.
Other videos on the site illustrate country dances and other four-couple set dances such as the Eightsome Reel, a now-popular ceilidh dance that dates from the 1870s.
