    Ever want to learn how to dance as they did in Jane Austen's day?  Join us for a casual class and familiarize yourself with the basics of early 19th century English Country Dancing.  No experience is necessary to participate and there is no need to bring a partner.  All are welcome and there is no charge to take part in the lesson regardless of your membership status with the RSV.  We do ask that you please register for each session you wish to attend in order to give us an idea of how many to expect.
