In the opera-house, I saw a beautiful young English dancer, the daughter of a hairdresser, who fascinated the audience through a whole season, with her celebrated hornpipe... Nature had been lavish in her flexible form, and though she indulged in an exquisite variety of graceful attitudes, she never broke through the strict bounds of modesty. The music to which she danced was stubborn and unyielding, but this helped to show off, by contrast, her snake-like evolutions.
