Crosston Dance Ball 2006

Do you love period dance and are eager for a chance to dance the night away? Are you new to dance and want to give it a try? Do you have 12th Night garb that didn't quite get finished in time for 12th Night? Then this is your big chance to realize your dreams: come to Crosston Shire's annual Dance Ball and show off your finery while learning and performing popular period dances. A day of dance instruction led by our fabulous dance instructors will be followed by a sumptuous one-course feast prepared by Lady Chiara la Trombottiera, and an evening of dance to the sweet tunes of our wonderful live musicians.
