ImageJoin Walter Nelson for an evening of 1920s and '30s Waltz.

The Waltz of the Jazz Age is different from the Victorian style as well as the current "international ballroom" version. It is free, easy and intimate.

The program will cover several of the steps and styles of the time, to include the "box-step", the turning Waltz, the walking Waltz and the French Musette style.

Cost: $10 by cash or check at the door.

The instruction will make extensive use of film clips from the era.

Beginners welcome. No partner required. Jazz Age style clothing is encouraged but not in any way required.

Feel free to RSVP on Facebook to let us know you're coming: https://www.facebook.com/events/235829880274105/
