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. Be sure to attend the pre-ball workshops during the day, where Cathy Stephens will teach you the basic steps you’ll need to 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.

11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. Basics Workshop: Stepping into the Ragtime Era - Practice the basic steps you’ll need for the ball and dance to delightful period music. For all levels of dancers.
1:30 - 3:00 p.m. Intermediate workshop: Free-style Flights of Fancy - Here’s an opportunity to work on creating your own style, developing a “signature move,” or adding a bit of old-fashioned pizzazz to your ragtime dancing. Cathy will show you how simple footwork can look fancy and how a touch of fancy footwork can change a dance from “same old” to “WOW!”
