Jane Austen in Nederland - A Dutch Jane Austen Society

On April 10, Jane Austen in Nederland will hold a ball in Amsterdam. I wish I could join them! The ball will likely be a rousing success for the Society has only 5 slots left! From these images taken at last year's ball, all the elements are in place for an authentic evening: costumes, setting, and the dances "cotillions, quadrilles, longways en contre-dances zoals Mr Beveridge's Maggot (below) (longway),La Boulangere, Shrewsbury Lasses(longway) en The Hole in the Wall(longway."

Inquiring readers: In honor of Raquel Sallaberry's contribution from Brazil, Jane Austen Today will be featuring blog posts and events around the world this week and next.

How nice that you post about activities all around the world!

I will attend this ball on April 10th and am really looking forward to it, we always have so much fun at the workshops!
What started out as a small group of enthusiastic people that wanted to learn all the dances, has rapidly grown to a real Jane Austen Society of the Netherlands with over 180 members, something which we couldn't have imagined.
