I`ve often wondered about the scene in Emma, where Emma says to Mr.Knightley that it`s not improper for them to dance. After all: They`re not brother and sister....
And then my question is: Was it really improper for brothers and sisters to dance at that time? Why? Was this the case only in regency, or how long did this "restriction" last?
