Dance for a Week

"There were twenty dances, and I danced them all, and without any fatigue. I was glad to find myself capable of dancing so much, and with so much satisfaction as I did . . . . in cold weather and with a few couples I fancy I could just as well dance for a week together as for half an hour."
- Jane Austen, Letters.
