Jane Austen Movie Trivia

From the Internet Movie Database: Emma, 1996

During the dance sequence between Emma and Mr. Knightly, the music being played is "Mr. Beveridge's Maggot" ("maggot" meaning "to fancy or like something"). This is the same music used in the famous scene at Netherfield Hall in A&E's Pride and Prejudice, another screen adaptation of a Jane Austen novel.

This scene from Emma leads up to the dance. You can hear the music start up at the end of it.

That's a standard English Country Dance; the dance and the music are the same every time. We do it at our ECD classes occasionally. There are lots of ECD groups around the country, you might want to give it a whirl. It's really quite fun.
