Imagine yourself transported to the world of Darcy and Elizabeth, of Napoleon Bonaparte and Jane Austen, walking straight into Netherfield, dancing to live music and sipping a frothy cup of syllabub with a room full of charming people, all as delightful as they are delighted to find themselves in Regency England, without even inventing a time machine.
No partner is necessary and no dance experience required. Dance lessons are offered Wednesday evenings. October 5, 12 and 19 at 7:30 pm at the Sugar Foot Ballroom, 8116 - 105 st. and Sunday afternoons, at 2:30 pm, October 2, 9 and 16 at Ritchie Hall, 7727 - 98 St. There is also a dance workshop the day of the ball, 1-3 pm at Ritchie Hall. Please bring a water bottle and wear comfortable shoes. Lessons are 90 minutes.
Dress code is Regency. Some costume rentals available, as well as custom-ordered costumes at very reasonable prices. I will bring my small stock of costumes to the dance lessons for guests to try on and rent. I will also have some accessories for sale, such as stockings and long, white gloves. For custom-made costumes, please contact Meg at NutmegSews@gmail.com. She will also be at the dance lessons, ready to take your orders!
Some video tutorials on putting together your own costume, and on the dances, will be posted at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIn1Mil6l-w4f3pPD9wm6WA
Below is a sample of some of the costumes available for rent.
