SPECIAL NOTE:  Make a weekend of it! The next day, Sunday, February 12, American Vernacular Dance is hosting a Valentine Tea Dance with vintage ballroom dancing, also at the Avalon! It runs from 2 - 5 PM, with live music and a free lesson beforehand at 1:00 PM. For more information, contact Jim X. Borzym at 720-317-3946 or avd@columbine.net

"Vintage" ballroom dancing to great live music at the Sunday afternoon Ragtime-Era Tea Dances. Waltz, tango, foxtrot, one-step, blues, two-step, Charleston, early swing, maxixe and half-and-half are among the couple dances we enjoy at the "Tea Dances".  The dance lesson and lovely light refreshments are included in your admission price. The lesson is always aimed at easy lead-follow dance skills to get you dancing comfortably and meeting other dancers.

No prior dance experience required. No partner needed. Second Sunday of the month, September through May (no summer dances).

"Vintage dance" means early styles of couples dancing, including those from the early American ballroom dance craze of the ragtime-era, which is roughly that sentimental period of 1909 through 1914. Recommended dress is dressy; i.e. vintage, neo-vintage, contemporary fashionable, or otherwise clean and neat. No shorts or casual t-shirts for men.

The Tea Dances are conducted by American Vernacular Dance.
