These 1817 satirical prints show potential mishaps on the dance floor. But never fear! Join us for the Regency Intensive Dance Weekend and perfect your steps and figures. By Sunday night, you won't be bumping into your partner-even if that would be historically accurate too. ... See MoreSee Less

Existing 19th century photographs showing ballroom or other social scenes are rare and incredibly magical. We are so looking forward to Returning Heroes, our only costume-required ball of the year. It is an immersive step back in time into a ballroom like this one! There are still tickets available-we hope you'll join us! ... See MoreSee Less
