OUR NEXT TEA SOCIAL:
The Victorian Tea & Dance Society presents

American Colonial Tea Social
Sunday October 4th
1:30pm - 5:30pm

OUR DANCE PROGRAM

Judee Schumacher-Pronovost will bring us
dances from the Colonial era (late 1700s)
along with a few other favorites I am sure.

OUR MUSICIANS

The wonderful Whirled Peas are back!

OUR TEA TIME

Our culinary historian, Mary Llewellyn,
is helping us plan our 1776 menu for tea time.

Come at 12:30pm for a special two-part
Couples Dance Workshop
in preparation for the upcoming ball season
featuring tips on floor craft, etiquette, waltz and polka.

You do not need to attend Part 1 to attend Part 2 however
it is recommended as both will be "stand alone" classes.

No partner is needed to attend the couples workshop.
Many come as individuals so partners are available.

To attend our 12:30 workshops is an additional charge of $5.


Our October tea dance
is part of a Dance Weekend!

In October we are honored to promote a "WEEKEND OF DANCE"
with back-to-back historical dance events!

On Saturday Oct. 3rd is the 15th Annual
Playford to the Present Ball
a lovely English Country Dance formal evening
in our home hall, the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
(This Ball is not recommended for beginners).


Then on Sunday Oct. 4th is our VTDS
American Colonial Tea Dance Social

We highly encourage ALL to attend our Sunday afternoon dance.
Beginners are always welcome at our tea socials.

~ News ~

After holding our entrance fee steady for as long as we could (4 years)
the rising costs of hall rentals and tea time treats have finally brought
about an increase. Starting in October our Tea Socials will now be $20
which includes live music, dancing, dance instruction and tea time.

~ ~ ~

FIRST TIME ATTENDING?
If you are new to this style of dancing please arrive early.
Let us know you are here for a beginners walk through of basic moves.

NO COSTUME IS REQUIRED!
We welcome those who dress in Victorian or fanciful attire
however many come in modern day clothing.

NO PARTNER NEEDED.
Many of our dancers come as individuals. It is a great way to meet people
and make new friends. Dances are easy & fun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PLEASE R.S.V.P.!
Though walk-ins are welcome, it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all. When you reply YES we do purchase and prepare food for YOU. Kindly respond by Thursday afternoon prior to our Social of your R.S.V.P. if possible.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests to bring their own settings for tea time. It adds an elegant touch and helps reduce paper waste and clean-up time. (Quicker clean-up allows our Tea Hostesses time to dance after tea!)*
