Bond, Chrystelle T. "A Chronicle of Dance in Baltimore, 1780-1814." Dance Perspectives 66, vol. 17 (Summer 1976).
Annotations / Notes: A summary of dancing, both ballroom and theatre, in Baltimore during an important 34-year period, with a focus on dancemasters William Francis (active at Holliday Street theatre 1794-1826) and Pierre Landrin Duport (active in Baltimore 1791-2, 1802-10), as well as musician Alexandria Reinagle and stage dancer John Durang and his descendents. Bond focuses on themes like patriotism and exoticism (through pantomime and French ballet), showing how choreographed upper class dances of the colonial period (like the minuet) gradually gave way to the simple, more commercial dances for the middle classes. This is an essential study for music, theatre and dance historians.

Annotations / Notes: An introduction to the group of Annapolis wits whose humorous proceedings have survived in a manuscript at the Johns Hopkins University. The antics of the Tuesday Club open a window on the climate of civil discourse that characterized the Golden Era in Annapolis. In contrast to the political tensions that would soon led to revolution, club members employed parodies to mock political conventions. The actual minutes of the club as edited by Professor Breslaw have been published as the ||Records of the Tuesday Club, 1745 - 1756.
