Colonial Music & Dancing

Learn the dance moves that our early ancestors did out on the dance floor


Learn the dance moves that our early ancestors did out on the dance floor at balls and other social gatherings while listening to the period music as we proudly welcome back Charlie Zahm, Tad Marks, Noah Lewis, and Lynne King to the General Warren for “An Evening of Colonial Music and Dancing” on Tuesday, July 17th, 2018.

Come get a sense of how men and women dressed and danced at the balls and parties during the colonial era. Our friends Noah and Lynne will guide you through the social protocol that one needed to have at these balls and how they danced out on the floor with their partners.

Learn some of their dance steps and the music they listened to as they danced the night away. Charlie and Tad will be producing the music while Noah and Lynne will be leading the dancing and responding to your questions.

Dine on heavy hors d’oeuvres in the outdoor Terrace (weather permitting) and relax and enjoy the sounds of ballads from days gone by. This special summer soiree is easy on the purse at $39 per person, Alcoholic drinks are extra. Included in your fee is all soft beverages and coffee, all tax and gratuities, the program, and a donation to help support the Paoli Battlefield Historical Park.

Your admission also includes a raffle ticket for a chance to win a night’s stay at the General Warren. There will be one winner drawn at each event.
