What to Wear
Until then, we leave you with the following description of last
year's 19th century ball.
us in celebrating our 30th year of dancing to popular music from
1900 through the 1920s. The dances are easy to do and all levels
of dancers are welcome: the pre-ball workshops will get you ready
to enjoy the evening.
Cathy Stephens, our Dance Mistress, will lead the dancing.
Lively music will be provided by the Huron Valley Serenaders
(featuring Jon Milan, Mike Karoub, and Tommy Bogardus). This
fantastic combo has thrilled us with their hot renditions of
this music for many years.
Period costumes from the early 1900s
through the 1920s are encouraged
but not required.
