The Merton Assembly Dance


Hi All -

Here’ s the lively Merton Assembly country dance from Pride & Prejudice.

Country dances in the early 19th Century served the same purpose that group dancing has always had - the opportunity to meet eligible folks of the opposite sex; as were also the more formal and stately balls.

PRIDE & PREJUDICE directed by Joe Wright (2005 129 min.)

Here is the link to this festive scene:
