10th Annual Matilda’s Tea Party: Waltzing Matilda!
At the start of the 20th century, when Matilda Frelinghuysen was a young girl learning to dance, the waltz was a favorite. During Matilda’s teen age years, the ballroom dance craze swept the nation. Come and celebrate the 10th Annual Matilda’s Tea Party with your favorite young companion and enjoy a high tea and learn the dances that, one hundred years ago, all young people knew and enjoyed. All young tea-takers should wear their best dancing slippers and be prepared to hit the dance floor while partaking in tea, pastries and sandwiches both sweet and savory. Children will also make a fan for use when curtseying and a Venetian mask, so important for your next Ball!
Appropriate for ages 6 and older.
