Welcome! you have found your people. No partner is necessary or required, many guests come solo, and there’s always someone to dance with!

We recommend attending as many as you can. The more you are able to practice the dances, the more fun the ball will be. We will teach 2 of the 4 dances at each Lesson, and do a quick review of all four at the Refresher Saturday morning. Please see the ticket descriptions to see which dances are being taught at which lessons.

To assist with the lessons there are videos of all the dances on our website: https://www.prideandprejudiceball.ca/tutorials/

We do strongly recommend attending the lessons! You and the other guests will have so much more fun and really the lessons are a blast all on their own.

Costumes for this event, the bare minimum for ladies is a Full-Length Gown in a soft fabric with fully covered shoulders. An empire waist is preferable but not mandatory. Flat shoes only please. No high heels. For gentlemen, the minimum is a Tail Coat or frock coat with a vest and a cravat (literally a strip of fabric tied around the neck) and a white shirt.
