When Sue Dupre leads dances for the Patriots’ Week Colonial Ball each year, she wishes she could tell the dancers much more about 18th century dancing, especially why the 18th century folks didn’t need a dance caller for their balls and assemblies. Please gather with Sue for this video presentation to learn about the important role of dance in 18th society, what dances were done and how they were taught, and tidbits about dancing in the Delaware Valley in the 18th Century. This program is made possible, in part, by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission through funding from the Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts
