The Commonwealth Vintage Dancers 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 the dances of these periods, we host public balls, dance classes and multi-day workshops for a thriving community of historical dance enthusiasts.

NEWS

We’re kicking off the summer with a Sewing Workshop. If you want to learn how to make a Civil War era ballgown, these three sessions will show you the basics. We will cover buying and shaping a hoop skirt, buying a corset, picking fabrics, sewing a skirt, and finally, sewing a bodice.


We’re also planning two tea dances. A CVD tea dance is the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. It includes a dance lesson, plenty of social dancing to great music, and delicious summer refreshments. Our hall has air conditioning, so it’s never too hot to dance!
