Ragtime/Twenties Era

Touring Shows

Charleston with “Me”; a tribute to Brenda Ueland and her world.

Vintage Ragtime Dancing

“Know that you have something important to say!”

Brenda Ueland’s words have inspired artists and writers since the Roaring Twenties and WWI. Where did she find inspiration? At Lakes Harriet and Calhoun of Minneapolis, as well as among artists in Greenwich Village, NY. It was a time of the sacrifice of war and the extremes of the Twenties.  How better to represent Brenda’s own flamboyance and feisty spirit than through the dances of her day: the Charleston, Tango, and Black Bottom! With live ragtime piano, slides, narration from Brenda’s books.
6 performers.
