If you cannot be in New Orleans, do celebrate Mardi Gras with us while dancing to the glorious music of Franklin Beau Davis and The Brassworks, who will play an evening of popular late 19th Century dance music, ranging from the most exquisite waltzes, mazurka waltzes, quadrilles, and mixers to exhilarating polkas.  As usual, the band will also play our favorite Neo-Victorian dances "The Congress of Vienna" and "The Bohemian National Polkas" and some delightful musical surprises.

After the 7 pm vintage ballroom dance lesson, formal dancing to our wonderful band follows from 8 pm to midnight.

Mid to late Victorian evening dress, fancy dress, fantasy costume, or modern evening dress is admired but not required and costumes in shades of purple, green, and gold are very welcome.

Our usual no host bar will be available and a light complimentary snack buffet (your potluck contributions are welcome) will be served.

 Laissez les bons temps rouler!
