Jane Austen Regency Ball
Join us Saturday, October 18
from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The Aladdin Hotel Ballroom
1215 Wyandotte St.
Kansas City, MO
You are cordially invited to attend a delightful evening of English country dance
in the polite society of three remarkable organizations:
The Jane Austen Society of North America—Kansas City Region
The Midwestern American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
The English Department, University of Missouri - Kansas City
We encourage our neighboring JASNA Regions to attend, but make haste to inquire
about discounted hotel rooms by contacting Dr. Jennifer Frangos at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ticket price is a modest $12 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.
Dances 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.
We encourage Regency dress or modern attire. The ballroom 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.
Bring your pounds, shillings and pence for the cash bar.
Ready your reticule, feather your head dress, but by all means
register by emailing Leah Wilson at email@example.com
Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
Spend the Day in the 18th Century!
Dance attendees may puchase a $25 non-participant day pass
to attend Saturday's academic panels offered
by The Midwest American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
Select from a variety of topics throughout the day,
including an Austen-specific panel at 3:45.
Check the conference website for details on or before September 1
and consider adding this enjoyment to your dance registration.
