Jane Austen Regency Ball

Join us Saturday, November 7
from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Immanuel Lutheran Church
1700 Westport Road
Kansas City, MO

You are cordially invited to attend a delightful evening of English country dance
in the polite company of
 The Jane Austen Society of North America.

We encourage our neighboring JASNA Regions to attend, as well as our friends
from Kansas City English Country Dance and Lawrence English Country Dance.

Ticket price is a modest $10 per person. Even Aunt Norris 
would find the sum reasonable for the benefit received!


Bring a friend or partner, or come by yourself...it matters not, because our style of dance 
will have you changing hands with both novice and experienced dancers throughout the evening.



D
ances will be called by Jerome Grisanti whose enthusiasm, distinctive voice 
and clear teaching skills have made him a popular caller throughout the Midwest. 



Dances will flow to the live music of Jill and Greg Allen of Red House. 

W
e encourage Regency dress or modern attire. The ambience is enhanced 
by the swing of skirts and kilts. (No jeans please.)
Light refreshments will be served 
and card games will offer alternate entertainment. 


Ready your reticule, feather your head dress, but by all means
save the date of Saturday, November 7.

Church parking is available at two Immanual Lutheran parking lots,
but not on Westpport Road itself. Sharing carriages is highly recommended!
