Event

Dance Hall of The Eye Which We Do Not Have
PLENTY OF TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!!

Friday May 24 8 PM (sharp) - 11:30 PM.  Doors close at midnight.

Dance Hall Of The Eye Which We Do Not Have

Passion and desire mix with propriety and restraint when we create the '20s/'30s dance hall - in regards to The Eye Which We Do Not Have.

Which side will you be on? Will you keep a spot open on your dance card for the comely stranger across the room? Or will you sweep into the arms of a willing taxi dancer, knowing that a dollar a song is all you are to them?

We will teach you to dance the slow dance and provide you with a card to arrange your prances for the night.  Or beware, our matrons will match you up.  We also provide you a bevy of Taxi Dancers. Who, for a dollar a dance, will "teach" you slow dancing for one song. (and feel free to inquire about our 'private classes" behind the screen.)

Doors at 8. Arrive early. Start filling your dance card. Music begins promptly at 8:30, with intermissions between songs. Dance lessons provided throughout the night.

Tickets are limited. Purchase yours now.
Be part of tripping the light fantastic.

FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH DANCE CARDS -
A dance card is used by those attending a ball to record the names of the partners with whom they intend to dance each successive dance.
A dance card is typically a booklet listing the songs to be played during the evening, next to which one can write a dance partner's name. It has a decorative cord by which it can be attached to a wrist or clothing.

FOR THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH TAXI DANCING -
   But I landed in a dance hall part time money was all
   I could make
   Sayin' hey mister, take a chance
   It only costs you a dime a dance
   And if you're lookin' for romance
   I'll be nice to you
   Hey mister, it's so cold
   When you don't have someone to hold
   - lyrics to "Dime a Dance'
   
In the '20s and '30s when taxi dancing was in its peak, ballroom patrons would buy dance tickets for ten cents each in order to have a 'dance teacher', hence 'dime-a-dance girl'.

Despite the general opinion of the day, and even a 1932 sociological study that idenitified taxi dancing as a profession chosen by "morally and sexually corrupted women," dance hall hostesses were not the gold-digging floozies they were believed to be.
