Guilty by Association - Dancehall Dancers vs. Soiled Doves
Grand Ballroom 10:30 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.

The miners, the cowboys, the railroad men, the cattle barons- who might these men have sought out to provide entertainment when their hard day's work was done? Despite the myths of history, not every girl on a saloon stage or in a dance hall was a "bad girl", although there were plenty of soiled doves to be found! Miss Tabitha shares with you the real history of the variety of entertainment available in the sometimes rugged and rough, sometimes civilized Old West towns, from famous opera singers to Hurdy Gurdy girls, Taxi Dancers, and the crib girls at the infamous Birdcage Saloon.
