Please join us in celebrating the Town of Nahant’s historic past with a MID-19th CENTURY BALL on July 16, 2011, in the lovely Nahant Town Hall, 334 Nahant Road. Some dances will be called during the Ball such as our own Nahant Quadrilles and Contra Dances. Other dances, including the basics of period waltz and polka, will be taught at the afternoon dance workshop. No pervious vintage dance experience is necessary. Formal or semi-formal Dress is requested Period dress of the 1860's (civilian or military) is encouraged. Children (if well behaved and supervised) are welcome! Spectators are also encouraged! The view is lovely from the balcony! There is no admission fee for spectators, although donations are welcomed.
