“As close to time travel as we can get.”
Guest, Regency Ball

Imagine yourself transported to the world of Darcy and Elizabeth, of Napoleon Bonaparte and Jane Austen, walking straight into Netherfield, with dancing, live music, food, playing cards, in the stunning Empire Ballroom of the historical Fairmont Hotel Macdonald.

You are invited to attend our Regency Ball!

‘I want to, but I’m an introverted Austen fan and no one will come with me!’

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

‘I don’t know how to dance!’

We teach the dances, which require no partner and no dance experience. We are offering dance lessons. You can buy tickets to as many as you wish (or drop-in). 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.

‘I don’t have a thing to wear!’

No worries! We have ways for you to rent, buy and advice for you to make! your 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. Breeches with long socks are preferable, but regular pants are fine. Any dress shoes will do. Historical Military dress and traditional cultural dress (eg. Kilts) are also welcome. And you are welcome to dress as a Gentleman or a Lady as you please!

On the 250th anniversary of Humboldt’s birth, numerous events are being prepared on both sides of the Atlantic.

The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research, Humboldt Foundation Liaison Office in Canada, and University of Alberta International invite you to explore Humboldt’s legacy with Dr. Sandra Rebok.

Her research over the last twenty years has concentrated on the history of science, with particular emphasis on scientific expeditions in the 19th century, Humboldtian studies, Atlantic history, intellectual and cultural history, as well as the analysis of networks of knowledge in an international context.

The event will include a Film Screening on Humboldt’s life at 11:00 a.m., followed by a free lunch at noon and a lecture by Dr. Sandra Rebok. In her talk, Dr. Rebok will evaluate Humboldt and his achievements, and explore how his key achievements can be defined, in which ways he differed from other explorers, and what we can still learn from Humboldt in facing the challenges of today.

All are welcome to join!
