Jane Austen loved to dance! Our re-enactment of a Regency ball features a pre-ball Regency dance basics workshop, live music, a National Histori c Site venue with a fire on the hearth, and Austen-era refreshments. The theme? She had two brothers in the Royal Navy, sailors appeared in her novels Persuasion and Mansfield Park, and we threw in pirates for fun!
No partner or dance experience needed, but the pre-ball basics workshop is prerequisite for those newer to English Country Dancing. The workshop is friendly and fun, no matter what your skill level, and there’s no lead or follow. All welcome, and everyone will be asked to dance!
Historical clothing optional, but warmly encouraged.
