Celebrating Nathaniel Gow at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms
As soon as the Battle of Waterloo was won, the people of Scotland were eager to find out the latest Paris fashion. The Quadrille was the new dance craze and it was not long before it was brought over the water to Regency Britain.

“This is is a brilliant and worthy project that is of great importance to our nation’s history of dance.”- Stuart Marsden
