Steampunk Ball- 9/6



SPACE 1889: THE ADVENTURE OF LE CIRQUE DE VENUS
A Victorian Ball in Space!

I just wanted to invite everyone to this Ball especially since so many people are going to the Ball at the Steam Powered Con in Sunnyvale. This dance will be very similar. You can learn a polka and practice your waltz, play test your bustle or robotic arm before the big Convention Ball.


This particular dance is being sponsored by PEERS- The Period Events & Entertainments Re-Creation Society. They have been holding vintage inspired dances for over 20 years and they know how to put together a fabulous evening. Don't know how to dance? They'll teach you! (classes are right before the ball). Don't have a partner? They will provide one! Dance ambassadors will be on hand to coax you wall flowers off the wall... And if you are allergic to couples dancing, join one of the set dances (think every Jane Austin movie you have ever seen)


The crowd will include seasoned costume professionals, people in modern formal clothes and everything in between, so don't feel like you MUST have an astounding outfit to fit in. This is the perfect event for those new to Steampunk. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.


Come to dance! Come to hear the ever engaging live music of Bangers and Mash (you may have seen them at Dickens Faire). Come to admire and be admired.
