Artist's Description

Social Events
Example: The Dance
One of the most popular events in Victorian upper class society was the dance. Dances were usually scheduled around full moons. Although the dance was so popular, even the largest houses did not have great ballrooms, so as a consequence, balls were usually held outdoors.

They started around 8 o’clock so the light of the full moon allowed less lighting to have to be put up. The hostess and her daughters greeted the guests at the front door.

During the 1850s and 60s, floral decoration was very popular, which later changed, by the 1890, too much decoration was frowned at.

At the usual dance, a band, consisting of a cornet, piano, violin, and a cello during the 1850s, played from the ‘top’ of the room, which usually was the area farthest away from the door.

Occasionally, in order to prevent difficulties, dance cards were written out enabling the guests to choose in advance which dances they preferred so no quarrel could be caused by disagreement.

Sometimes the dances were done so excessively that cavalry officers were asked not to wear spurs, in order to prevent injuries.
