Nothing says Victorian Cape May like the charm and spectacle of a Vintage Dance Weekend - dozens of dancers in elaborate costume swirling gracefully to the music of another era. You can be part of it!
An all-inclusive Vintage Dance Weekend package (3 Workshops, Ball & Tea Dance) for either weekend is just $95. Separate admission is also available: 3 Dance Workshops, $45; Vintage Ball, $35; and Tea Dance, $25. Vintage costume is highly admired but not required.
