While Victorian-era dancing includes quadrilles and contra dances, by the mid-1800s these group dances were no longer the fashion. Instead, ballrooms were littered with individual couples swirling around the floor on their own, dancing the improvised, turning couple dances that emphasized fancier footwork, holding your partner in a close embrace, and spinning and twirling. These are fun, not-so-easy dances that use ballet-like footwork and require jumping.

Renée Camus teaches steps and techniques for "round" dances and variations, such as:
♪ 1860s Waltz ♪ Polka Redowa ♪ Polka Mazurka
