The Great Divide? The Impact of the French Revolution on dance, costume and culture
Successive modes of dancing in France responded directly to changes in the social and political environment; the relative calm of England brought such changes more slowly; French emigres brought French modes to England, and in France, English country style could be affected without making any unwise political statement. In the special case of Bals de victimes, dance and dress defied the new regime - from behind closed doors. A detailed study of dancing as described and experienced by Jane Austen completed the English aspect of those troubled times.
