The Shenandoah Valley Civil War Era Dancers is an all-volunteer, non-profit group whose main goal is to raise money for battlefield preservation by teaching and enjoying early American dance. Their website lists all of their practice and events schedule as well as their donations. They offer free and open to the public dancing, usually 4 Thursday’s a month in 3 different locations.
Join them as they have fun learning dances from the 1700’s and the 1800’s, including lines, circles and square sets, along with a waltz or a polka from time to time. Free and no dance experience is necessary. Wear regular clothes and comfortable shoes.
