The dawn of the 20th century gave rise to the ballroom dance craze, so every young girl learned to dance the waltz and foxtrot gracefully.

Make your dance card and join dance instructor Jamie DiMare, who will lead the group in the basics of ballroom dance.  Wear your best dancing shoes, and be prepared to fill your dance card. Hit the dance floor to learn the way young Matilda Frelinghuysen would have known. Guests enjoy tea, pastries, and tea sandwiches. Snow date: Sunday, March 10.
