Historical attire from 1918 (or thereabouts) is suggested, but not required. If you lack historical attire, ladies will do fine in a loose cotton blouse and an ankle length skirt. Gents will be fine in a coat and tie (especially a bow tie).

The Dances
The most common dance is the One Step, which is the easiest ballroom dance ever (it's just walking) and a fine alternative for any dance in 4/4 time. Also on the program are the Tango and the Waltz, There will be a dance class in the hour preceding the event (noon to 1) to cover these dances.

Proceeds benefit the Lanterman House Foundation's mission of preservation and education
