Your gift will be used to assist deserving attendees who cannot otherwise afford the weekend. We strive to keep the registration fees as low as possible so that everyone can attend; every little bit helps us open the world of the past to more people now, and in the future. Your gift will help us achieve that goal.

Pack your trunks and warm up your ankles for a trip into history! We’re planning a fun filled Historic dance week. The last few details are still being finalized before we open full registration, but you can reserve your place today. We are accepting pre-registration deposits now. Check the event page for more information as it becomes available.

The Nahant Dance Weekend is a holiday by the shore where we bring history alive in one of America's first summer resorts. Whether you love the romance of the Victorian era, or the excitement of the Jazz Age, this week has something for you! Summer will be here before we know it!

The event schedule will include:

  • Viennese Grand Ball with Spare Parts
  • Syncopation by the Sea Dinner Dance with Dan Levinson, Dan Gabel and the Nahant Dance Orchestra
  • Silent Film with Jeff Rapsiss
  • Concert & Formal Afternoon Tea
  • Seaside Promenade
  • Costume and Dance Classes
  • Fabric Shopping Excursion
