Join us for a Rip-Roaring dance hall party at our recreation of the notorious Bella Union dance hall in Gold Rush era San Francisco. After the 7pm pre-ball Vintage Ballroom Dance lesson, Bangers & Mash plays an evening of popular dance music from mid-century America – from waltzes, polkas, mazurka waltzes, and schottisches to quadrilles to wild contra dances, reels, and mixers. No partners needed and all pattern dances will be taught and called. Victorian costume, Old West costume, Saloon Girl/Dance Hall Girl costume, Victorian Steampunk, or modern evening dress is admired but not required. No Host bar, light snack buffet, & card room & salon.
