Here’s a question, did George Washington dance? According to General Nathanael Greene,

 “His Excellency (George Washington) and Mrs. Greene (wife of Nathanael Greene) danced upwards of three hours without once sitting down.” [1]

We’d say so.

What about during the time of the Revolutionary War?

“The anniversary of our alliance with France was celebrated in proper style a few days since near head-quarters, at Pluckemin…In the evening a very beautiful set of fire-works was exhibited, and the celebration was concluded by a splendid ball, opened by his Excellency General Washington, having for his partner the lady of General Knox” – Dr. James Thacher, Pluckemin, New Jersey, February 4, 1779 [2]

We certainly think that ‘celebrating in proper style’ ought to include dancing. Do you?
If so, come celebrate Independence Day with us on…
