One of my favourite parts of the Regency period is the romance of dancing at those glorious assembly room balls. Who could forget the scene in the BBC film where Mr Darcy (Colin Firth) dances with Elizabeth Bennet (Jennifer Ehle) for the first time. In fact the camera closes in on the first touch of their gloved hands to highlight the significance of this meeting. Most of the Jane Austen films have at least one memorable dance scene. I also like the scene from the film about Jane Austen, Becoming Jane, when she dances with Lefroy. The glances between them are pure romance! You can watch it via the following link.
