Ragtime CoupleEnjoy dancing to the wonderful music of the Ragtime era. The dances from 1900 to 1920 are easy to learn and all levels of dancers are welcome. At the workshops, Dance Mistress Cathy Stephens will teach you all the basic steps you’ll need so you can dance all night. Music for the ball will be provided by the Huron Valley Serenaders.

We encourage you to come in period dress (early 1900s through 1920s).

Preregistration is preferred.
