Geschichte der tanzkunst bei den cultivirten völkern von den ersten anfängen bis auf die gegenwärtige zeit

Front Cover
J. J. Weber, 1862 - Dance - 264 pages
In this vast history of dance, Czerwinski discusses the origins of dance with Greek and Roman examples and continues with a description of the dances in many countries including Spain, France, Germany, England, Scotland, Sweden, Holland, Poland, Japan, and Turkey. Specific dances include the galliard, galop, menuet, quadrille, waltz, and tarantella. Although the scholarship is flawed by contemporary standards, the work is part of a large body of literature that influenced the writing of dance history through the end of the nineteenth century.
