The VSC is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) Colorado corporation.
What We Do
The mission of the VSC is to preserve the rich social history and culture of the Victorian era (the period of 1837-1901) through public events, education, and demonstrations.
The group conducts monthly events throughout the year, including train excursions, dances, lawn parties, socials, Victorian site tours, Civil War and Victorian Old West events, teas and a grand ball every September. Check our EVENTS tab to see what's happening and when. If you'd like our calendar e-mailed to you, please request one at info@VictorianSocietyofColorado.org OR create a login at our "Membership & email" tab and add your information. Other events are scheduled at the whim of the membership.
On Facebook members post impromptu places and events they will meet up at in historic attire. Also groups form to attend out of state events together and occasional Victorian Cruises
Dances are authentic from the period of the reign of Queen Victoria, simple to learn, and are taught at each event. Dances include reels, quadrilles, set waltzes, polkas, and, of course, the elegant free waltz -- all guaranteed to make you smile. Everyone is welcome to join in on the fun, whether singles or couples - partners are not required. Any scheduled dance lessons are open to members and non-members, alike.
You Can Do It Too!
If you are concerned that you may have two left feet and the dances might be too difficult, let us assure you that the dances are not at all complicated. If you can walk and count to 10, you can do these dances. The trickiest part of Victorian dancing is that you must know your left foot from your right. Most people get into the swing of the dance from the very first dance.
The group is available for demonstrations and exhibitions. We will come to your location and perform dances in period wardrobe to live or recorded music.
