Biltmore in Bloom: SD Vintage Dance Week, April 26-30, 2015
Join San Diego Vintage Dance Society as we travel back in time to the Biltmore Estate, for vintage dancing, costuming, parties, lectures, dancing, tea, fabulous food, and say again, DANCING!! The Biltmore Estate, built by the Vanderbilt family, is one of the largest houses ever built in North America, and April will reveal it's 8000 sq.acres all in bloom. There's no place like this! Vintage dance instructors include Richard Powers and Marc Casslar. Music for evening dances will be provided by Spare Parts. Dance Week will be April 26-30, preceded by a weekend (April 24-26)of vintage activities on the estate arranded by Jeanette Murray (information & cost available soon).
Our hotel for dance week, will be the fabulously quirky Grand Bohemian Hotel, located just at the gate of the Estate. Built to suggest a 17th European hunting lodge, it will be perfect for our activities. A block of rooms is being held for us until Jan 10, 2015, at a rate of $179 per night plus tax. Additional nights may be available.

Dance classes for the week will be held in the 6000sf ballroom of the Asheville Events Center. Evening Dances will be on both the Estate, at the Lioncrest and Deerpark ballrooms (NO one, even Vanderbilt's Great Grandson gets to dance in the Mansion itself). Our last evening will be in the Grand Bohemian Ballroom, preceded by a sit down dinner.
