About this Item

Title

  • Assistant for A. Dodworth's pupils

Summary

  • This small, pocketsize manual was intended for the students of well-known New York dancing master and composer Allen Dodworth. The manual states the rules for classes, gives Dodworth's qualifications as a teacher, and describes appropriate manners and etiquette. Dances include the quadrille and the popular parlor game known as the German as well as a section on how to dance the "Boston," a waltz variation. As is common in all of Dodworth's works, the author gives ample advice to musicians.
