Now the king is forcing the young man to make a choice that will separate him from the beautiful princess, and alter the course of his life forever. This story with pictures is a page-turner filled with excitement and surprises.

This is followed by discussion of round dances--the polka, numerous waltzes including waltze à trois temps, and waltze à deux temps--as well as steps and figures for another type of quadrille known as the mazurka quadrille. The manual contains eighty-three figures for a series of dance games, called the cotillon (also known as the German or German cotillon). The manual includes eight full-page prints by Paul Gavarni.
