March 9, 2024 – Dancing the Time Away in Early America

Dancing was a favorite pastime of early Americans, including Noah Webster.  Men, women, and children found relief from work by taking part in dancing.  It was a time to “kick up your heels” and enjoy time with family and friends.  Join us at the Noah Webster House and learn how to dance the Townsend Reel and a favorite among children, Allee-Allee-O.
