In 1856, a French visitor to London, Francis Wey, described the dancing at Cremorne "In a Chinese bandstand an orchestra struck up a scottische. A minute later the carefully levelled open space was filled with couples […] people here dance with their hips and their shoulders, seeming to have little control over their legs […] frivolous young things improvise all sorts of indecorous antics."
