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:

Civil War Dance Weekend – Learn the dances, attend a ball, make a flower head-dress or silk neck stock, and spend an afternoon with 19th century amusements.
