Join us for an annual tradition!

A magical evening of dancing from the Civil War period (1861-1865), with music by Spare Parts and lavish period refreshments! Returning Heroes is our only COSTUME REQUIRED event of the year, which creates a truly transportative experience that is not to be missed.
Step back in time in this historic hall to dance popular dances including waltzes, polkas, schottishes, country dances, and quadrilles!

All dancing will be taught. There will be an afternoon workshop on the day of the event from 3-5pm that is free with your admission to the ball!

Costume of the 1860s is REQUIRED for this event! If you have questions, please email us at query@vintagedancers.org.

Happy New Year!! I was wondering who would be the proper person to speak with about auctioning off Patriots, Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox autographed items at your events through KBK Sports? Thanks! - Jon

Hi Jon, Your message has nothing to do with our mission to reconstruct, teach and perform historical American social dances.

Fezziwig's Ball is happening! We are keeping an eye on the weather. If the governor were to call a snow emergency, and tell people to stay off the roads, we would cancel the event -- but that is unlikely to happen. We expect the snow to fall over a long period, so the road crews will be able to keep up with it. Salem is very good with street plowing and keeping parking spaces clear. ... See MoreSee Less

Some people are traveling quite a distance to get there.... It's not just the streets of Salem that we are concerned about!

I think I am going to need to stay in as I am driving one hour and 15 minutes away from there. Maybe I can come to another ball in exchange 🙂

As much as I hate to miss this I just turned around to head home. 90 between Sturbridge and Worcester is pretty wicked.

Too dangerous for us to make the trip, its too bad, we were really looking forward to it 🙁

This storm has definitely become significant.

Great evening! CVD does such a great job! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication! Happy Holidays 🎄♥️

Fezziwig's has sold out!There's a chill in the air, frost is predicted, and Fezziwig's has sold out!
As a reminder, there will not be a waiting list or standby tickets--but we have more events in February and March, so if you missed out on this one don't despair! We hope to see you back in Salem at the Jane Austen Ball.

Men, if your formal white breeches and silk stockings are at the cleaners, you can wear a dark suit for this ball.

Ladies, you don't have to look like Queen Victoria on your first outing. If you want to check out the dancing and have a lovely evening without committing to the costume, wear a simple long or long-ish dress.
