Civil War Era Dance Calling and Instruction by John & Elaine Masciale
Live Music performed by Century Air Minstrels
Light refreshments provided.
Families with children are welcome. Come introduce your children to dancing and society within a fun, historical context.
Period evening attire is encouraged but not necessary. Modern semi-formal attire or attire from other historical eras is also gladly welcomed. Doors open at 6:30pm. There will be a ladies powder room made available (across from the main floor ladies bathroom).
Our goal and desire is to continue to provide a delightful, low-cost family event and Civil War era winter grand ball. With hall rental expenses rising, we relocated last year from Memorial Hall in Rockford to Loveland Community House in Dixon IL. Loveland Community House and Museum is a lovely hall that is dedicated to providing space for community social activities. The hall contains several rooms decorated in the Victorian era as well as a Victorian era museum.
