Title

Beseda Quadrille, part I

Subject

Quadrille

Description

František Bonuš, a noted dance pedagogue from Prague, led a quadrille workshop in Berea, Kentucky in 1987. The video of the entire workshop is lengthy and has been edited and divided into nine parts. This is Part 1 and shows figures from the Czech quadrille, Beseda, a dance in eight parts. The date of composition for the dance is in dispute, with November 11, 1863, the most commonly accepted.

The event was videotaped and uploaded by Dr. John Ramsay, whose YouTube channel contains scores of videos related to the history of traditional American dance.
