The Victorian Society of Colorado invites you to their

Grand Ball -
this year with a special

Downton Abbey Theme

 

THEME Description:
Influenced by the popularity of the Downton Abbey British TV drama, whose fictitious matriarch, Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham (born in 1842) was a product of the Victorian era, our ball will move beyond the Victorian era to also include a selection of dances inspired by those popular through circa 1925, to coincide with the announced concluding Downton Abbey episode. 

 
The TV drama commences in 1912, when the Dowager was already 70 years old, and the producers have announced an ending year of 1925, when the Dowager would be 83 years old. The Victorian society into which Violet Crawley was born very much influences the values and proper demeanor of this Downton Abbey character.  Our ball will move through times impacted by the Victorian culture, sometimes emulating it--sometimes rebelling against it, to present a sampling of the historic attire, music and dances up through the 1920s.  Formal historic attire from 1842 - 1925 is encouraged but not required.  All dances will be taught by dance historian Sharon Guli and no prior experience is needed.  Bring a camera, you will want to photograph this event!
