*A note on “Calico Ball” attire:
Calico Ball attire is where the attire is a little more relaxed than a regular ball, suitable for outdoor lawn parties. For those who like to come in Victorian attire, this means that the ladies would wear dresses of calicos and cottons instead of silks and satins; the gents might dispense with their coat or wear daytime jackets. Nice attire, but not as formal as a regular ball. (Note that this is not the same as a "Barn Dance"; i.e. no bib overalls and straw hats, please). –Tom Willson, Simi Valley Vintage Dances

As always historic costumes are admired but not required.
We do request that everyone dress befitting the intention of the theme.

at the front desk. We have many friendly experienced dancers
available to give you a hand in learning the dances.

We welcome those who dress in Victorian or fanciful attire
however many come in modern day clothing.

It is a great way to meet people and
make new friends. Dances are easy & fun!

Though walk-ins are welcome when space is available,
it is important to plan properly to have abundance for all.

Though paper plates are available, we encourage guests
to bring their own settings for tea time. It adds
