They feature the old orchestration, music, and step sequences that drew us to this avocation more than fifty years ago. The focus is on dance programs of that era.

The classics of that period should be preserved. We want these traditions to go to the next generation from two or more generations in the past. We must not lose these old dances as the normal evolution to keep learning new ones continues.

In these times, many women prefer to dance the man's part rather than just sit. We encourage ladies to participate in this custom. Ladies, don't hesitate to bring another lady as your partner to these classes! (And gentlemen, get a lady!)
