....I do still get the impression his comments were intended as a slight set down. I think he must know Emma's views on her own ability when it comes to dancing-he has showed himself extremely familiar with her throughout and Emma does not strike me as likely to downplay any real skill she might have. Emma herself also ' felt his comments to be aimed at her' and though she might be overly imaginative (it does occasionally happen :)) I believe she is in the right this time. Perhaps her (in my mind very natural) excitement about the ball and about having a new and charming partner to dance with did rub Mr. Knightly the wrong way. I would say it did, and I think he couldn't resist bursting her bubble a little with a comment marking the unimportance of something she was excited about and knew she was good at.
