If you are new to this style of dancing please let us know
at the front desk. We have many friendly experienced dancers
available to give you a hand in learning the dances.

We welcome those who dress in Victorian or fanciful attire
however many come in modern day clothing.

Many of our dancers come as individuals.
It is a great way to meet people and
make new friends. Dances are easy & fun!


Though walk-ins are welcome when space is available, it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all. We recommend you purchase tickets through PayPal or email us for an address to mail a check to (please allow sufficient time for us to recieve your check).
When you R.S.V.P. YES we do purchase and prepare food for YOU.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests to bring their own settings for tea time. It adds an elegant touch and helps reduce paper waste and clean-up time. (Quicker clean-up allows our Tea Hostesses time to dance after tea!)*
