The Commonwealth Vintage DancersĀ reconstruct, teach, and perform American ballroom dance of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. We focus on the Federal, Civil War, Gilded Age, Ragtime and Roaring Twenties Eras. In addition to performing dances of these periods, we host public balls, dance classes and multi-day workshops for a thriving community of historical dance enthusiasts.

Our Next Event:

Fezziwig’s Ball – Come to our annual holiday celebration in the spirit of Charles Dickens’ Christmas Carol. We will teach all dances during the ball but if you want to learn some of the dances in advance, we will have an optional dance class the Sunday before the ball.

Upcoming Events:

The Great Gatsby Ball – Believe it or not, tickets are sold out! Get your name on The Great Wait List.

The Jane Austen Ball – Dance like Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy at a fun and welcoming ball.

Returning Heroes Ball – Civil War period dress is required. Step back into the past at our most immersive ball.

Regency Dance Weekend – Join us for a weekend of dance classes, period entertainments, and two balls in 1812 style.
