Fezziwig's Christmas Ball!

Get out your fancy dress and dancing spirit and celebrate Christmas at Gordon . . . on campus and in Salem! Sponsored in part by Gordon’s Institute for Public History and held at Salem’s Old Town Hall, Fezziwig’s Christmas Ball will be an unforgettable evening of dance and merriment from the era of Dickens.

Much of the program will consist of set dances taught during the evening. These will include Victorian favorites, easy contradances and simple quadrilles, as well as Sir Roger de Coverly, an English version of the Virginia Reel. Interspersed with these will be elegant couple dances such as the waltz and polka.

So dust off that modern evening dress or costume from Dickens’ times and bring your merriment to Old Town Hall, 32 Derby Square, Salem, Massachusetts, Saturday, December 11, 7 p.m. Be sure to make your reservation!
