You are Cordially Invited to attend Fezziwig’s Ball, an unforgettable Evening of Dance and Merriment from the era of Dickens. Much of the program will consist of set dances which will be taught during the evening. These will include such Victorian favorites as Pop Goes the Weasel and other easy contradances and simple quadrilles, as well as Sir Roger de Coverly, an English version of the Virginia Reel. Interspersed with these will be elegant couple dances such as the waltz and polka.

The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a lantern procession through the streets of Salem. Dancing will commence at 7:00 pm. Lavish refreshments will be served at the intermission. The evening’s festivities will conclude at 10:00 pm. Modern Evening Dress or Costume from Dickens’ Lifetime is Requested.
