2014, “Alliance Quadrille”: A History Painting with Polka Mazurka Steps

Click here to read the paper.

The dancing master (Der königlich böhmisch ständische Tanzmeister) Johann Raab created a Quadrille “L’Alliance” in lines (in der Gasse), that should be performed in Polka-Mazurka steps.

As far as I know, this is the only Quadrille to be performed in this step
and on the title page the subtitle says: “(im Polka Mazurka Schritt).

What interests me even more are the titles of the figures: La Reine,
L’Empereur, L’Attaque, Le Congres, La Victoire, Sebastopol.
