Mary Neal 1860

BACKGROUND

Information: Mary Neal (born Clara Sophia Neal), teacher and author of English folk dance books.

Mary attempted to revive English folk dance among the seamstresses and suffragettes, followed by Cecil J. Sharp among the upper classes. Her Espérance Society could never hope for the longevity of Sharp's better-funded English Folk Dance Song and Dance Society.
