1nevas groupThe New England Vintage Arts Society (NEVAS) is a group dedicated to recreating and enjoying activities from the past. We are currently planning our schedule for the coming year, and are looking forward to sewing workshops, dance classes, outings, and dance events. We enjoyed selling scones, popovers and comfort foods at NEFFA and look forward to returning next year!
We are currently running a series of vintage dance classes to prepare for our Vintage Dance Weekend in Nahant, MA in August. Join us Sunday evenings in May, June and July to review mid & late Victorian, and Ragtime Dance Steps. Use the links below to sign up for classes and the dance weekend!
