from “Don Juan”
And then he danced;—all foreigners excel The serious Angels in the eloquence Of pantomime! He danced, I say, right well, With emphasis, and also with good sense— A thing in footing indispensable; He danced without theatrical pretence, Not like a ballet-master in the van Of his drilled nymphs, but like a gentleman. Chaste were his steps, each kept within due bound, And elegance was sprinkled o’er his figure; Like swift Camilla, he scarce skimm’d the ground, And rather held in than put forth his vigour, And then he had an ear for Music’s sound, Which might defy a crochet critic’s rigour.Lord Byron [1788–1824]
