COQUETTE_SET_[1]_FIRST_FIGURE. American, Quadrille Part (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABACA. The quadrille evolved out of the popular four-couple Cotillion dance form, popular in England since the late 1760's. Quadrilles were the successor to the cotillion and used many of the same steps, but originally could be danced by two couples instead of four, making them more practical for smaller gatherings. Quadrilles emerged as their successors in London's ball rooms from the mid-1810s. "Coquette" was one of influential English dancing master Thomas Wilson's names for the first set of figures of his "First Set of Quadrilles" (1817).
