Annual Meeting and Luncheon
Include a program of:
“Dancing into History with the Castles”
Martha Griffin and Marc Casslar, dance historians
Hendrick's Tavern, Roslyn
Irene and Vernon Castle were America’s leading
dance couple in the 1910s who popularized the fox trot,
tango and other social dances at “Castles by the Sea”
on the Boardwalk in Long Beach, Long Island.
Dance historians Martha Griffin and Marc Casslar, who are members of the
Vintage Dance “Polite Society,” will introduce us to these celebrities who lived in
Manhasset. They will demonstrate their dances in period costume and explain the
significant contributions of the Castles to dance history. Their program is brought to
you by Kandie Carle of K&C Enterprises, East Haddam, CT.
We are looking forward to a very special afternoon commemorating this
legendary couple who brought charm and much joy to society with their innovative
elegant social dances at magnificent dance palaces. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
immortalized them in their 1939 film The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle. We will
have music from the 1910s for your listening and dancing pleasure.
