A long time ago in a ballroom far, far away...
His Excellency the Baron Administrator of the planet Bespin invites one and all to attend an elegant ball in honour of freedom in the Galaxy! Everyone is invited, from any world, galaxy, alternate dimension or parallel timeline. Whether you prefer to War among the Stars or Trek through them, whether you are Guarding the Galaxy or Skylarking through Space, or even if you're just a Space Cowboy with a love of Serenity, come join us at an out of this world event!
Science Fiction or Fantasy Costumes from any universe, past, present, or future, are welcome. Historical costume or modern evening dress is also appropriate - as long as you can dance in it.
For the dance music will indeed be out of this world! There will be a 7 pm vintage ballroom dance lesson with formal dancing following from 8 pm to midnight. The celebrated Renaissance Rock band Avalon Rising plays an evening of vintage ballroom dance music, Celtic and Celtic fusion rock, highly danceable science fiction and fantasy-inspired songs, and more! Come dance some of the most beautiful dances of the Universe! Elegant waltzes of Lost Alderaan, choreographed pattern dances of Coruscant, energetic Corellian polkas, and many, many more!
There will also be DJ dancing and sing-along musical performances at intermission, and our usual excellent No Host bar will be available and a light snack buffet will be served (You potluck contributions are very welcome!).
May the Fourth be with you!
