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 dance to actual music and dances from history 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. Many, but not all, will wear them when attending our larger weekend events so come as you are comfortable. Love costuming? It’s perfect. Don’t love costuming, no worries! Costumes are not required for any of our events though we love to admire them all.

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.
> Proof of vaccination and masks are REQUIRED.

Historical Dancing
in the Throne Room Ballroom
at the Labyrinth Masquerade Ball
August 19th & 20th

Once again we dance Historical dancing in the Throne Room at this wonderful event both nights all evening long. Three sets of group dancing with waltzes and more inbetween. Dances are fun and easy to join right in. We welcome beginners and have our team, wearing red sashes, on the dance floor to assist. If you have not yet attended and the thought of attending a magical ball filled with wizards, elves, goblins, and more sounds exciting please do attend.

The Labyrinth Masquerade Ball is one of the largest masquerade balls in the world. The most amazing fantasy artists, costumers and dreamers gather once a year to bring a diverse host of characters, creatures and mythologies to life.

Though NO COSTUME IS REQUIRED one should dress for the occasion (check out the photos of prior events on their website).

For more information about and to purchase tickets go to:
Labyrinth Masquerade Ball


Please note we do not run this event and any questions not related to dancing should be directed to their team and/or website.
