Celebrate The 1876 American Centennial
All Are Welcome to Attend!
UPCOMING – A PERIOD BALL TO CELEBRATE THE 1876 AMERICAN CENTENNIAL! The North River Historical Dancers, a local historic dance troupe, is proud to present “A Centennial Ball 1776-1876” to kick off its 2015-16 class season at the Ridgewood Community School. The Ball will be held at the Willard School Auditorium, located at 601 Morningside Road, Ridgewood, NJ on Saturday evening, September 26, 2015 from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m. Be transported to another time or to your favorite historic film…. Enjoy live period music by The Gotham Gals – Julia Hartman (violin), Norma Castle (flute and percussion) and Robin Russell (piano) – and engage in dances that span the tumultuous decades from the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 through the Centennial Celebrations of 1876, called by troupe member Janice Wolk. The event is open to the public. All dances will be instructed– no experience necessary. Come alone, or bring a friend — or two — or three! There are no young children’s activities planned for this evening. Attire is period/period-inspired from Colonial to Victorian, or modern festive.
The cost is $25 per person. Make your reservation in advance (recommended) by contacting Steve Tichenor firstname.lastname@example.org or Janice Wolk email@example.com. You may also pay at the door.
