English novelist Jane Austen once famously wrote, “Don’t believe every quote you read on the Internet.”
That’s why Jane still has many fans to this day — a true Brit who spoke her mind and … was also a massive dance fan!
So, Brits in Toronto was very excited to hear about Jane Austen Dancing, a website listing sociable events in and around Toronto based on the theme of the famed, curly brown ringlet-haired novelist always staring off into the distance as she ponders her next best-selling book on the wry foibles of high society, cakes and piano lessons by the window.
The website lists a lot of Austen- and Regency era-related events and other fun stuff that would even make Jane crack a smile.
Here’s the next one: Saturday, October 19 — Trafalgar Ball. Dancing, decorations, live music and toasts to Lord Nelson and King George!
There’s also a mailing list, Twitter accounts to follow and a whole lot more.
So, swallow your pride, forget your prejudice, use your sensibility and spend some of those cents (that one didn’t quite work) on tickets!
