Open Dance Rehearsal for Candlelight

Gateway Gallery, NC History Center, 10:30 – 11:30 AM

At this year’s Candlelight, 18th-century dancers return! On Saturday, December 3, the public is invited to come to the Gateway Gallery of the North Carolina History Center to witness an open rehearsal.  At this rehearsal, you won’t see anything like the picture above, but you will hear recordings of the songs which will be played live during Candlelight and get a glimpse of some of the period underpinnings that support the size of their elegant period gowns.  The ladies will be strapping on side hoops over their modern-day outfits during the dancing at this rehearsal.

Come catch a glimpse of what is to come at this year’s Candlelight, on December 10th and 17th.  This event is FREE and open to the public.
