Quadrille

Description

Michael Bergman: Sadly, they've substituted walking steps for the more difficult Regency-era style steps that were still in fashion when the music was written. They are correctly using the older French formation of lines of couples facing couples across the set, with no progression, which predates the four-couple quadrille. On the positive side, there's nothing quite like performing to thousands of people who all know the music, and this is a living tradition, not a performance -- each year, the new debutantes in Vienna learn how to do this.
