Links for a Launch Party

Get those dancing shoes ready! I have books in hand, and Lucy and I have been practicing up our dance moves. If you haven't gotten your evite, message me at christinadudley@gmail.com because all are invited!

When: Thursday, May29, at 7:30 p.m.

Where: The Engberg Assembly Rooms (see evite for address)

What: An introduction to my latest traditional Regency...




There will be more orgeat lemonade, a costume contest, and prizes! You don't have to wear a costume, but it sure is fun to dress up and goof off. Nor do you have to dance, but it gives you new respect for all those book heroines. Becoming an accomplished young woman was no cakewalk.

If you want to catch glimpses of our dance, "Auretti's Dutch Skipper," you can watch the Gwyneth Paltrow Emma on Netflix Instant. At 1 hr, 18 min in, when Mr. Elton is snubbing Harriet Smith and Emma is fretting, the dance she and Frank Churchill are performing is Auretti's Dutch Skipper!



And if you'd like to watch ordinary (non-movie) folk giving it a go, here's a YouTube link:


Looking forward to a fun evening!
