Many of the members of the North River Colonial Dancers are living historians that participate in re-enactments from different eras.  Our repertoire includes  dances from the late 17th/early 18th century (the Playford era), e Federal Period (Regency) and Civil War era as well.  We are fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with the best musical talent, who provide sublime period music at many events in which we have performed.
