    This is just lovely and was this past April. I bet some are not even reenactors...they just enjoy dressing up Victorian. Thank goodness @Mrs. V Hale Farm's won't be as formal!:happy:

    I'd be in quite a bit of trouble, I do not know how to dance!

    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:

    Thanks for the links. I’ll have to sit down and look at these later.
