Evolving from afternoon tea, a Tea Dance usually takes place during the summer or autumn in the late afternoon or early evening and was very popular among genteel society throughout the early part of the 20th Century. Also known as thé dansant (French for "dancing tea"), food and drink was served – tea, coffee, champagne, wine, ices, fruit, sandwiches, cake and biscuits. A live orchestra was often expected to play some light classical music for the participants to dance to - waltzes, tangos and the Charleston were all familiar sights.
