Dancing at the Governor’s Palace

“Virginians will dance or die” wrote an 18th-century diarist. What better time than the 21st century to learn a few “new” dance steps? Prepare to experience one of the favorite pastimes of colonial Virginians. The dancers will discuss various types of 18th-century dances, from country dances to minuets, and demonstrate them for the audience. At various intervals throughout the program, you will be asked if you wish to participate in the fun.
