Victorian Ball - 2013 Victorian Festival of Port Townsend
Considered the signature event of the Victorian Festival, the Victorian Festival Ball provides an opportunity for all Festival participants to don their elegant Victorian attire and dance to one of the region's premiere vintage dance ensembles. Participants can show off their costuming, dance quadrilles, polkas, and even a waltz - the scandalous new dance of the period in which women are pulled into the arms of their male dance partner!
The ballroom will be adorned with period elegance for the gala evening event. Both beginning and experienced dancers will revel in an evening of romantic music and elegant social dancing as they are transported back to the mid-19th century. A knowledgeable dance caller will make all the dance steps flow and lead the incomparable first dance - the traditional Grand March.
Light refreshments and non-alcoholic drinks will be served and are included in the admission price. Historical dress helps liven up the the evening but is hardly necessary. Costume resources: Seattle
