The Fiftieth Year

Crosston Ball -- Crosston

January 8-10, 2016 (AS L)

Los Gatos History Club,
Los Gatos, CA

From The Page (December, 2015):

Good gentles, join us for the Crosston Ball in the garden. The 2016 Crosston Ball returns to the History Club of Los Gatos. Classes will begin at 2 PM and continue to 5 PM, after we will have a brief outdoor picnic in the garden.

The ball itself runs from 6-10 PM. The general theme is “in the garden,” enjoy accessorizing as you wish. Dances will span both time and place, including the flashing energy of Master Caroso's cascarde, the serene elegance of the bassedances of Burgundy, and the stately paces of England's Old Measures. A preliminary list of dances and classes can be found on our website.

There will be no site fee; donations are, as always, greatly appreciated but not required. Come anyway! We want to dance with you. If you play an instrument, please feel free to bring it – the dance band would love to have you. Contact the autocrat for more details. In addition, there will be a silent auction of garb to benefit the ball.

Please join the West Kingdom College of Dance and Music Facebook group for general information about music and dance in the West Kingdom.

Please wear shoes with non-marking soles. Beer, wine and champagne are permitted with discretion.
