During the holiday season the Ridgely family would have attended and hosted many parties, dances, and balls. The Great Hall at Hampton was a wonderful place for dancing, especially for the line dances that were popular during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This special performance will feature dances from the Regency period (1800-1825). The audience should come prepared to dust off their dancing shoes as Choregraphie Antique encourages audience participation.

Choregraphie Antique, the dance history ensemble of Goucher College makes history come alive by performing ballroom dances of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century. Dancers dressed in beautiful costumes perform vintage dances recapturing the elegance of courtly french menuets, bourrees, allemands, and lively English country dances of that Americans love to dance in eighteenth century America.
