“Victorian Era Couple Dances” is the fifth in the “How to Dance Through Time” video series. This video continues the tradition of The Roamance of Mid-19th Century Couple Dances. The viewer can re-visit the classic 19th century couple dances and explore a kaleidoscope of 32 innovative step variations. The Waltz cultivates a wealth of turning embellishments; the Polka develops whimsical variations; the Gallop drives into a new level of expertise; and the Mazurka blossoms into a virtuoso display. Professional dancers demonstrate each step in slow motion and with close up camera views. Historical information, with original illustrations, illuminate the evolutionary role of each dance. The authentic music and fashions of the Victorian era enhance this video.
