attended the "Ballroom Dancing" seminar on Saturday morning. Mr. and Mrs.Symborski
gave a very thorough and enjoyable presentation on the development of ballroom
dancing from the early 1800s to the mid-nineteenth century.
utilization of overheads and many wonderful quotes and anecdotes of the period,
a basic knowledge of ballroom dances, etiquette, and dress were reviewed. [Tapestry's
dancers] demostrated several steps and hand holds, which I found to be helpful
Civilian activities, went as planned -Saturday morning's presentation on 'Ballroom
Basics' by John and Lynn Symborski was superb. The manikins they set up as a part
of the 19th Century Fashion show were beautifully done.
cannot express my thanks and gratitude for a wonderful, wonderful job on the seminar
and the fashion show - many people were impressed. The manikens were so wonderfully
done and the fashion show was first class. "First Class" was a comment I received
from some people who observed it. The manikens were an excellent idea/touch and
you must be commended for your excellent planning on the event. If you are interested,
we would like for you to again do the fashion shows next year and also call the
the folks who coordinated that dancing seminar are John & Lynn Symborski, a very
accomplished couple. What did you think of that dress she had on? Even this fashion
lummox couldn't help but admire it!
the morning seminar (we saw) the Fashion Show at the Pavillion . There were several
lovely outfits on display on mannequins in addition to the live models. Attire
for women, men, and children were represented.
|Though I could only glimpse at the fashion
show as I hiked hurriedly by, later on I saw and photographed a lot of both public
and spectators admiring the costumed mannequins. |
