I was looking for something new to do with galopade for my upcoming classes in Voronezh, Russia when I came across the same set of galopade quadrille figures in several different dance manuals from the 1840s. That seemed to be a sign, and the quadrille turned out to be a fun little set. (Edited 3/21/2015 to add: and the dancers in Voronezh liked it too!)
The quadrille instructions are quite straightforward. There are six verses, each bracketed by the four couples performing a galopade around the set, turning at each position, and a "balance and turn" figure in which they chassez right and left and then turn partners by two hands, ending in close hold to prepare for the galopade at the beginning of the next verse.
