Join us twice a month for a historical dance class.
Specific steps are broken down and variations are learned
in this fun and upbeat class. With time permitting, we also review couples dance basics including rotary waltz, polka, and schottische.
Advance your dance skills! If you've wanted to join in on the advanced dances at our tea social or popular balls this is a sure way to learn how! LEARN dances you have seen in popular movies from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice to Gone with the Wind.

and review of finer details of dance to improve your skills.
