Seven Hills Inn

Join San Diego Vintage Dance Society, September 18-22, as we travel back in time to the "Inland Newport" community of Lenox, Massachusetts for vintage dancing, costuming, parties, house tours, dancing, fabulous food, and, say again, DANCING! This Berkshire area hosted 'summer cottages' of many of the same families who had similar 'cottages' in Newport, Rhode Island, and we're going to dance in some of them.

Our accommodations for this dance week will also be a fabulous 1911 mansion estate now known as the Seven Hills Inn, a 27 acre estate with it's own ballroom, swimming pool, and more. It's a perfect location for our activities.

Vintage dance instructors include Richard Powers and Marc Casslar. Music for most evening dances will be provided by Spare Parts.

Dance classes for the week will be held in the Mansion's ballroom. Evening Balls will be both at Seven Hills and nearby venues.
