from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice to Gone with the Wind.

As a BONUS we will be reviewing dances from upcoming balls
including
the Danse Macabre Halloween Ball (October 22nd in Riverside),
the St. Nicholas Ball (Dec. 11th in Pasadena),
the Jane Austen Ball & Tea Dance (January 28th & 29th in Pasadena),

make new friends. Dances are easy & fun!

it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests
