Joined by the dance instructors from the BlueBallRoom Dance Studio with music from H. F. du Pont’s era performed by Sean Reilly and David Zipse, you’ll be transported back in time.
Dancing has always been a vital and dynamic part of American culture. Through the centuries, dancing has changed to reflect evolving attitudes and behaviors; the waltz was considered scandalous by some when it became popular. Dance is constantly invigorated by the contributions of diverse cultures and music, and America has contributed to the world of dance by creating original forms and styles. Reservations required. $40; $35 for Members. Includes general admission, one era-inspired cocktail and bite, and a dance lesson with BlueBallRoom Dance Studio. Register by October 2.
