I'm not much better at an "era" dance. However this looks possible to do because the moves are being "called out"
The first tune is Nelly Blye! Then there was a bit of Battle Hymn..such fun! I could do this, if it were called like a square dance. I can waltz, and I am old enought that I don’t need to ask a patron for permission!

I think I can handle that with it being called out, and the "moves" aren't anything crazy. Also I love the group behind them with all the folks in modern clothing! Hey is that guy wearing Adidas? :roflmao:
