Our 13th year!
We will have a mix of waltzes, polkas, Congress of Vienna, mixers,
a couple of set dances, some latin and swing. A New Year's Eve countdown, singalong.

No partner necessary for the Ball. A tradition at our New Year's Eve Waltz ball is that many people arrive as singles and dance with others

Formal, elegant, evening wear is very much appreciated at the Ball, but not necessary.
