That's the 2nd year in a row I've missed this event! I had my own lovely daughters showing off their talents that night at our church's talent show! Besides, I have a hurt foot :-( I love dancing, and my husband is a wonderful dancer!
And speaking of manners, the ladies at the German deli love us because my girls always say "yes, please," "thank you," "good day," and "goodbye" in German! We're studying French, but I always emphasize that "thank you" is the first word(s) one should always learn in any language, and one should always learn to say it in the languages one encounters on a regular basis!
I would love to know where those girls are getting those lovely dresses. We are trying to organize a dance something like this, but we are concerned about where the girls will find dresses. Please don't tell me the girls are making all their own dresses!! LOL!
I know they got the patterns online, but I'll ask them for the specific link and get back to you. I believe you can also rent them, but perhaps the girls rented them from the theater department, I don't know. I'll get back to you on that, OK?
Love this. Where is it? We live in the north Dallas region and would live to attend this. I have three teen girls. We do Charlotte Mason and use Amblesideonline for our curriculum. I KNOW I was born in the wrong time era. Lol. I am crazy about Charles Dickens too!!
If you google "English Country Dancing" and the name of your city, you may find your own group that loves the Austen era! This dance was in Seattle, and that might be a bit of a drive, LOL!
My daughter has loved Jane Austen since our homeschool group did Pride and Prejudice in 2009. My son was Mr. Darcy and my daughter was Kitty Bennet. She made her own costume including a Spencer jacket. Since that time she has done an educational presentation for 4-H on Regency clothing and made 2 more gowns. She is planning a career in costume design and has started her own sewing business, Mariah's Masquerade, making costumes. She would love to attend a Regency Era ball! Too bad we are in Texas!
I had a feeling there wasn't going to be a downside. Thanks for sharing what your son is doing now!!

They call me the "Homeschool consultant who won't make you cry." When I gave my free class on transcripts last month, I said the class was a "No-Transcript-Shaming Zone" for
