Join us for a Rip-Roaring dance hall party at our recreation of the notorious Bella Union dance hall in Gold Rush San Francisco.

After the 7 pm pre-ball Victorian dance lesson, Bangers & Mash plays an evening of popular dance music from mid-century America - from waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, and schottisches to set dances, quadrilles, reels, and mixers. No partners needed and all pattern dances will be taught and called.

Gold Rush era costume (1840's - 1850's informal or evening wear - any class), Old West costume, Saloon Girl/Dance Hall Girl costume, or modern evening dress is admired but not required.

Our usual excellent No Host bar will be available (That means you pay for your own drinks, pardner!) and a light snack buffet will be served (You potluck finger food contributions are very welcome!).
