Please join us in New Haven, Connecticut, on February 4th for a Civil War-era Valentine's ball!
The Soldiers & Sweethearts Ball will be held at beautiful Pratt Hall (with its lovely dance floor) and will feature live music by Spare Parts and calling by Susan de Guardiola. This is a formal event -- your best attempt at evening attire or military uniform of the 1860s is requested. Dances will include the usual mix of 1860s couple dances (waltz, polka, schottische) as well as contras and quadrilles. An afternoon workshop will be held the day of the ball.
A small block of rooms has been arranged at the lovely New Haven Hotel, located across the New Haven Green three blocks from the ball site, with a special discounted room rate for Friday and Saturday nights of $109.00/night for two people, with up to two more people at
an additional $10/person/night through January 18th. After that, rooms may be available, but at a higher rate.
The cost of the ball $30 per person in advanced; student price $20 for ages 13-21. Under 13 free with parent/guardian and will be expected to behave as young ladies and gentlemen. At-door pricing will include a $10 surcharge and will be available only if space permits. Due to
the size of the hall this ball is strictly limited to 70 people.
ADVANCE PAYMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN JANUARY 30th!
Registration information (online and by mail) and more details of the ball, hotel block, etc. are available at the event website.
