Oh, Well!

Dearest Capering Friends, I gather many impressions of Regency dancing come from the Pride & Prejudice features, but they are a pittance compared to this: a great hall filled with happy ladies and gents in period attire, as far as the eye can see, stepping to music and guided by a caller so that none are confused or lost.

Of course, we don't have to dream. Here is "Well Hall" as performed at St. George`s Hall, in Liverpool, England.

Such a grand display deserves an encore. So here is "Auretti`s Dutch Skipper:"

Note all the laughter through the number, as some couples find themselves a bit out of sorts. It is no matter. We are not here to judge but to dance! So it shall be at the Pride & Prejudice Ball!
