Caroline and Catherine have been hard at work on this project and on Oct. 6, eight dancers and three musicians presented “An Entertaining Assembly for George Washington” as part of the re-opening celebration of Federal Hall in lower Manhattan. Federal Hall is a beautiful 18th century building that was the site of George Washington’s inauguration. Dances presented in the beautifully restored Rotunda included a Fancy Minuet, La Bretagne, The Louver (L’Aimable Vainqueur), La Nouvelle Yorck, and George Washington’s Favourite Cotillion. The presentation ended with a lively game of Blind Man’s Buff performed to the tune and lyrics of Yankee Doodle sung by our “master of ceremonies” Paul Shipper.
