After the meal we will have a short play put on by other international students about the origin of the Thanksgiving holiday, and then we will have dance lessons! We will be learning a traditional American folk dance called the Gallop Qaudrille (think Pride and Prejudice kind of dancing, you can see it here). No dancing experience necessary, it will be fun for all of us to learn this old folk dance together! We hope you can join us!
