Join us at a spectacular grand Victorian Ball at the historic Alameda Elks Lodge Ballroom and Salon, with brilliant 19th Century dance music by Franklin Beauregard Davis and The Brassworks, famous for their wonderful arrangements of classic Viennese Waltzes and of classical music for ballroom dancing. The Brassworks will play a varied program, ranging from Victorian rotary waltzes, Viennese waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, and schottisches to quadrilles, contra dances and set dances.

 Doors open at 6:30 pm and there will be a pre-ball dance class in Victorian ballroom dance at 7 pm followed  by formal dancing to live music from 8 pm to midnight. No partners required and all set dances will be taught and called at the ball. 

Victorian, vintage, or modern evening dress or dress uniform is admired but not required. Choose your favorite Victorian costume period (1837-1900).

There will be a no host (cash) bar, but, due to the pandemic, no food or snacks will be provided. We suggest you eat before the ball.  Fortunately, there are a variety of good restaurants in the neighbourhood, especially on Park Street.
