    Balls were a girl’s favorite thing to do in the 18th century. Make a craft to take home and learn new dance steps as you explore decorative food display and dancing appropriate for an 18th century ball! Includes a dance lesson in the famous ballroom where George Washington danced at his Birthnight Ball. Hour-long program begins at 10:30am with a new group starting every 45 minutes. Great for Daisy and Brownie Girl Scout Troops. Reservations are required.
