Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Congress Hall

By Press Release

CAPE MAY - Join Tom Cupp, America’s two time ballroom dancing champion, for an elegant event at Congress Hall. The Valentine’s Day Tea Dance will take place in the ballroom, Sun., Feb. 12, from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. You and your significant other will be sure to enjoy this charming experience complete with cocktails, sandwiches, scones, coffee and, of course, tea. The cost is $25 before February 2nd and $35 after Feb. 2. After the dancing concludes, you and your sweetheart can enjoy 15% off your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner at Blue Pig Tavern.

A tea dance, or thé dansant (French for dancing tea), is an afternoon or early-evening dance, sometimes preceded in the English countryside by a garden party. The function evolved from the concept of the afternoon tea, and its origin can be traced to the French colonization of Morocco. The usual refreshments in 1880 were tea, coffee, ices, champagne, fruit and biscuits. The expected feature was a live orchestra or a small band playing light classical music. The types of dances performed during tea dances included Waltzes, Tangos and, by the late 1920s, The Charleston.
