Watch Your Step! Vintage Dance Vignettes | Performing Group

Starting in the 1890s, through the dance craze that overtook America in the 1910s, the 20s flappers, 30s swing, and beyond, our historic pieces range from the silly to the elegant. Marvel at the antics of the animal dances, including the grizzly bear, the turkey trot, and the wallaby hop. Enjoy the refined hesitation waltz and the half and half. And revel in exotic dances adapted from foreign countries, such as the maxixe from Brazil and the tango from Argentina. Flip up your heels with a flapper floozie, cut a rug with a jive cat, or do the hustle.

Our troupe amuses and informs the public through the presentation of these dances from the past, some of which – like the foxtrot – evolved into the ballroom dances we know today.

Watch Your Step! is available for presentations, performances, and instruction in historic dance from the 1890s through disco.
