Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les Lanciers is a Square, or a Quadrille, which is the pan-European term for a set dance performed by four couples. It is a composite dance made up of five figures or tours, each performed four times so that all couples will dance the lead part. We find Les Lanciers or The Lancers in many variants in several countries. One in particular, with its own distinctive music and choreography, is danced only in Denmark.Les Lanciers came to Denmark from England in 1860 and was soon known in the higher classes in Copenhagen. New music was written, and the dance developed in a slow evolution during 50 years until it found its current and canonised form before the 1st World War. The dance which started in the bourgeoisie of Copenhagen spread out through dancing schools in provincial towns and through the landed gentry until it was known and loved in the entire Danish society.
