Black & White Ball

It’s time for an evening of elegance and fun at the Black & White Ball! Join us on Sunday, May 26th at 6:00 pm for an exciting evening by wearing your best formal wear, formal cosplay, or lolita, and putting on your favorite dancing shoes.

Get excited for great music, photography, and (of course) hours of dancing!

Want even more dancing?

The Black & White Ball has dancing all weekend, from dance performances and challenges at Stage Zero to a Decompression Dance Party—an informal social dance for everyone to have fun and practice what they’ve learned in a casual setting. There’s no need to dress up, but dress code rules regarding heels still apply.
