Join us for an elegant assembly ball set in the world of Jane Austen. Our assembly includes a full evening of Regency dancing, cards, witty conversation, and our celebrated no host bar.

Greenwich Mean Time, capital in their country dances, will play English country dances popular in the time of Jane Austen as well as some earlier country dance classics and a number of exquisite early 19th waltzes and waltz country dances.  And, of course, we will dance the wildly popular Congress of Vienna Waltz and Sir Roger de Coverley.

Don't know a hey for four from an allemande? Never fear! There will be a pre-ball workshop in Regency country dance from 7 to 8pm, and all country dances will be briefly taught and called. No partners needed either for the dance class or the ball. In true Regency fashion, most of us change partners frequently!

Late 18th century, early 19th century Regency (1811-1820) or Romantic era costume is admired, but not required, and modern evening dress is a perfectly acceptable alternative to period costume. Costumes and characters from both Jane Austen’s novels and films and the popular T.V. series “Bridgerton” are very welcome.
