The pleasure of dancing “to chase the glowing hours with flying feet”. The pleasurable qualities of set dancing, appeals to our three most important senses. The eyes are gratified by the beauty of the figure and form of the set dance. The ears are charmed by the rhythm of the set dance. The intellectual emotions are awaken by the set dance , and the physical feeling, that is amminate by the exhilarating influence of the rapid and easy pase of the set dance.
