Gadsby’s Tavern Dances

Go back in time, wear historical clothing and dance in an 18th-century ballroom. Gadsby’s Tavern Museum offers annual balls. There is the Jane Austen Ball, which will be on Aug. 8 this year, or you can dance with George Washington for his birthday on President’s Day weekend in February. You can also take a tour of the museum’s two buildings: the 1785 tavern and the 1792 City Hotel. –RD / alexandriava.gov/historic/gadsbys
