Irene Castle Chautauqua Performance
Vernon and Irene Castle, the couple that made ragtime dancing not just socially acceptable but downright fashionable. They took a dance from frowned upon by respectable society, and transformed it into a stylish hobby for rich and poor, and for the old and young. The Castles enchanted the nation: a married couple who actually showed affection to one another in public! In the years before the silent film industry had taken hold, the Castles laid the groundwork for public fascination with private romance. The program is presented Susan Marie Frontczak. Lunch will be served prior to the performance on Friday Feb. 10th. Cost is $17, register by calling 303-205-7500.
