Dance Class: Noon to 1 PM
Dancing and Tea: 1 to 5 PM


Historical attire from 1918 (or thereabouts) is suggested, but not required. For those without historical attire, ladies will to fine with a loose fitting blouse and ankle length skirt and gents with a coat and tie (especially a bow tie).

The Dances
The most common dance is the One Step, which is the easiest ballroom dance ever (it's just walking) and a fine alternative for any dance in 4/4 time. Also on the program are the Tango, the Waltz, the Two Step and the Fox Trot. There will be a dance class in the hour preceding the event (noon to 1) to give you what you need to enjoy the afternoon.
