The same program will be presented at both 11:00 a.m. and at 1:00 p.m. Each program will last approximately 45 minutes. The Leslies, who are experienced in Civil War-era dancing, will lead in a discussion of various 19th Century dances as well as teach the audience the basic steps to such popular dances as the Virginia Reel and the Gay Gordons.
