Come dance with us! The Shire of Crosston’s annual ball is back to physical reality, on the 15th of April at the beautiful History Club of Los Gatos. Join us for a day of dancing, music, and merriment. Classes for beginner and intermediate dancers will be available during the day, with class schedule and set list available on our Facebook page and hopefully here once we get closer to the day. All dances will be called during the ball.

Crosston welcomes live musicians! Contact the event steward for details and sheet music.

If you feel unwell, please stay home!

As always, we welcome folks who feel they need to wear a mask. The site also has a lovely outdoor patio and garden for people who want to chat or catch some fresh air (the patio has heaters in the unlikely event they should become necessary in mid-April.)

Site rules: Please wear shoes with non-marking soles.

• Setup begins at noon.
• Dance classes run 1 pm to 5pm, at which point we pause for dinner.
• No feast is planned; there are various restaurants in the area that may do delivery or bring whatever you would like. Stay tuned on the FB event page if a potluck/picnic becomes possible.
• 6 PM Ball opens, 10 PM Ball closes/cleanup begins, 11 PM hall closes.

Advance Registration: As usual, the Ball is donation-only; donations are welcome but there is no site fee. That said, excitement builds upon itself and we will be excited to see you all! We are requesting online registration. We will expect be able to welcome extra people on the day but having a list in advance would be really great. For preregistration, please see our Facebook page; we enthusiastically encourage you to complete it if you expect to come! That said, if you haven’t completed it and suddenly decide you’d like to come, or have an unexpected friend to bring along, by all means we would love to have you/your friend! This just makes it easier for us.
