The Euphorium’s Pre-New Years Celebration Dance!  Will be held on Monday the 28th of December at 7pm

Here is our Facebook Event page:   https://www.facebook.com/events/760352797432724/

We will be serving Hilda cake and Edaleen Dairy ice cream and snacks.  We will also have party hats, tiaras, horns, noisemakers, bubbles and anything else we can think of!  We, dear friends,  are going to have a blast! :) !

Unfortunately, however, we will not be able to do the fireworks display that we had planned to do because, as the Fire Marshall has told us, consumer fireworks are only allowed on New Years Eve and New years Day, and as we were not able to attain our venue on those days, we thus won’t be able to do the fireworks.  :(  Very sorry about that, but hey, we will be having so much fun dancing that we will forget all about the fireworks anyway! :)  😉  (we will do Party poppers and confetti instead – totally legal and we won’t have to stand out in the rain!)  :)

See you then friends, 😉

Jane Austen Ladies

We will, as usual, be pulling out all the stops for this event.  Many participants will be coming in Regency Era costume but anything 1740’s to 1820’s will fit in just fine as well.  Never fear however if you are not able to attain a costume in time for you can also come dressed current formal.

Jane group addressing the Presence

We will be enjoying contra dancing (including the “La Boone Amite'” – a 17th century French contredance.)  We will also try our hand at English and Scottish country dancing.  These are very easy dances to learn quickly and we will also have callers to guide us through them.  We are actively searching for a live orchestra to perform for us.

– Very Exiting News! We have an English Country Dance caller and musician who will be adding his expertise to our Jane Austen Ball event! His name is Barry Cole and he is a man of exceptional skill as both a musician, (he plays 20 different instruments), and as a caller, (for English Country, Scottish Country, Irish, you name it)!

But wait!- That’s not all.  we now also are privileged to host the authentic three piece English, Irish, Scottish country & contra band: Heliotrope!  This just keeps getting more and more fantastic!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn and enjoy some incredibly fun and historic dances with your friends and family!

Just ask yourself – What would Jane do?

Austen family presented to Mr Darcy

We will also be indulging in our usual homemade cake and Edaleen Dairy ice cream.  Event participants have graciously offered to bring 17th and 18th century treats so we look forward to indulging in those as well.

not if he can help it

This Jane Austen Ball is looking like it will be our signature event for our dance club’s first year.  It’s an event you won’t want to miss.  :)
