The steps of the dance are illustrated by the "Elke" team of the Nouveau Cirqueà.. This dance originated in American black slave society, mocking the manners of their European masters. It was then taken up by Europeans themselves, as here, in these French postcards with imprinted technical explanations of the moves. In this group, someone has added pen inscriptions in Portuguese [from Brazil?] bringing out the elements of erotic courtship.
