A peek at a girl's life in 1836...

I found some funny material from 1833 and 1836 on girl's exercise! Listen to this quote: "Dancing--that device of the devil, must be banished, and in its stead, Calisthenics must hold sway." from American Annals of Education and Instruction 1836.

Here are some of the exercises that young ladies could perform. You will love the illustrations of the ladies in Regency dresses!

More fun than a workout video from the 1980's!

Enjoy, Debby
