The Historical Tea & Dance Society presents
FROM JANE AUSTEN TO FEZZIWIG, AND BEYOND:
Why the last dance of the evening became the best dance of the night
with dance historian Susan de Guardiola
The ball is almost over: you've worn holes in your slippers, your hair is coming down, and you may be a little bit drunk -- but you still want that one last dance, the finishing dance! Whether it's La Boulangere (the only dance mentioned by name in Jane Austen's novels) or Sir Roger de Coverley (stretching through the Regency to Charles Dickens), or the Grandfather dance, the finishing dance was your last hurrah of the evening.
Internationally-known dance historian Susan de Guardiola returns to guide us through stories of the joyful chaos of the final dances in the glittering Regency ballrooms of England and Europe and across the Atlantic to their North American descendants.
Question and discussion time with Susan at the end!
