South Carolina Dances with Isabel Whaley Sloan
Presented by Patricia McNeely.
Isabel Whaley Sloan started teaching ballroom dancing and social etiquette in Columbia when she was 17 years old in 1914. For three-quarters of a century, generations of children, including Gov. Henry McMaster, flocked to her classes. Sloan was also well-known for organizing dances and social events for thousands of servicemen who were stationed at Fort Jackson during World War II.(Presentation lasts 35 to 45 minutes and includes a PowerPoint; a screen or blank wall will be needed.)
