I spent years researching in historical sources--contemporary books and magazine articles--so that I could provide the definitive history of this exciting dance. I've added lots more information in this new edition, plus many more photos, particularly focusing on the dance today and the thoughts and experiences of dancers performing it in France, the US, Canada, and the UK.
