Sketches relative to the history and theory, but more especially to the practice of dancing ... Intended as hints to the young teachers of the art of dancing by Francis Peacock( Book )

5 editions published in 1805 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual begins with a discussion on the importance of dance for youth and outlines the origins of dance. Although much of the historical and theoretical text is borrowed from other dance writers--notably Giovanni-Andrea Gallini and John Weaver--the manual is important for its description of the Scotch reel and accompanying ten reel steps. Some of the steps include kemshóole (forward step), minor and double kemkóssy (setting steps), lematrást (cross springs), and curatag (turning step)
