Very interesting.

In this program there is no sequences. In 1910... Not populair?

As far as I can tell, not very popular in this area of the USA. I think the only ones I have ever seen on a New England (northeastern USA) dance card are the Danish Dance and the Berlin, back in the 19th century.

Outside of New England, the Bon Ton in Middletown, New York, and the Rye Waltz in Las Vegas, Nevada, but both are 1890s. I do not have enough dance cards from other regions to draw conclusions about this.

There are sometimes dances like the Caprice, Knickerbocker, Varsovienne, etc., on New England cards from the 19th century, but those are not sequence dances in the same sense.

Thank you, Susan!
