3. Dance card, 1921. Some dance cards only listed numbers but many include the title and order of the dances for the evening. Several dances that were popular in the late 19th century, such as the Waltz, carried through into the 20th century. Others, such as the Quadrille, fell out of favour and were replaced by new social dances like the Fox Trot.
