“Vintage” ballroom dancing to great live music at the Sunday afternoon Ragtime-Era Tea Dances. Waltz, tango, foxtrot, one-step, blues, two-step, Charleston, early swing, maxixe and half-and-half are among the couple dances we enjoy at the “Tea Dances”.

Featuring Susan Rogers’ Exuberant Quartet with Rodney Sauer on the piano.
Light snacks provided. 
Couples and singles welcome; no prior dance experience required. No partner needed. No dance classes at this time.

“Vintage dance” means early styles of couples dancing, including those from the early American ballroom dance craze of the ragtime-era, which is roughly that sentimental period of 1909 through 1914. We call them “Tea Dances” because they occur at tea time – middle afternoon. This is an old-fashioned term but fits perfectly with this dance series.

Recommended dress is dressy; i.e. vintage, neo-vintage, contemporary fashionable, or otherwise clean and neat. No shorts or casual t-shirts for men.
