Dance Like It's 1863!

What better way to party than to dance like it's 1863?  You can join the fun by joining us for the Civil War Dance Workshop on Tuesday, April 2 at 7:00pm in the College Union Ballroom.

Members of the Victorian Dance Ensemble, part of the performing troupe of the Civil War Dance Foundation, will lead participants through a variety of easy dances.  No experience or partner is necessary.  Period address is encouraged for those who would like the full period experience, but not required.

This is the final event being held in conjunction with the traveling exhibit Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War.  Funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the exhibition examines President Lincoln's struggle to meet both the political and Constitutional challenges brought on by the Civil War.  Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War was organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office.  The exhibit will be on display in Musselman Library until Thursday, April 4 before being transported to another location.
