Our beloved annual holiday ball!

JOIN US for our annual holiday event to celebrate the season with our community of dance friends. Filled with Victorian and English Country dancing to holiday music this is a much loved favorite event of the year and we are back again! 

Once again we will be hosting a BALL ONLY event which includes intermission with tea, punch, savories, and gourmet desserts at the break.

Join callers Darlene Hamilton, Cara King, and Lindsay Verbil with the Whirled Peas in our lovely hall all dressed up with Christmas cheer!

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
Tickets are VERY limited and this event is meant for our DANCE COMMUNITY. There is NO TEACHING at this event and everyone attending is expected to understand the basic moves and concepts of English country and historical dance. If you would like to attend our events and are not yet a dancer we recommend waiting for January’s Jane Austen Tea Social and other wonderful events we host throughout the year.

If you would like to attend our ball we recomment you participate in English Country dance classes available throughout southern California including ours on Tuesday nights. (Reach out to us if you would like to find out about other dance classes in your area.)

Join us for Historical and English Country dancing.

Love Jane Austen, Bridgerton, The Gilded Age, and other historical movies and events? You will love Tuesday nights in Pasadena where we teach dances from history on into modern times. This dance style is alive and growing! It is an exciting world of upbeat dances to joyous tunes and also lovely slower moving dances to unexpected music that will surprise and delight.

We welcome beginners to come and experience what this world of balls and tea dances is all about and how much fun it is.

Costumes are not worn to our casual Tuesday night dances.
Come join us on the dance floor, make new friends, get a little exercise mid-week at our Tuesday night dances!

Arrive on time as we jump right into easy dancing.
We will have you up and happily “footing it” in no time at all.


PLEASE NOTE:
> Registration is REQUIRED PRIOR to our dance.<
Until further notice, due to the current health situation, you must be registered to enter the hall and attend our dances.
