Three Dances from Victorian England

Learn three social dances that were popular at balls and gatherings during the Victorian Age. Our al fresco dance party will commence with “The Grand March” which traditionally began events, as the dancers simply marched their way through various patterns allowing them to see who was there that night and what they were wearing! The second dance “Manchester Circle” is an easy circle dance that allows everyone to dance with everyone else in a repetitive circular pattern. “The Gothic Dance” is done in two long lines of dancers whose clasped hands and raised arms mimic the Gothic arches of England’s noble buildings. The dances will be taught by vintage dance instructor, Ruth Benson Levin, who promises a jolly time will be had by all.
