(Posted Tuesday Sept 28th, 2021)
To our esteemed friends and patrons:

We on the Social Daunce Irregulars committee regret to announce the cancellation of this year's holiday Victorian Grand Ball, traditionally held the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Given the continued impact of the highly transmissible Delta variant on indoor events, we feel that we cannot in good conscience stage the 2021 ball. The safety of our attendees, musicians and volunteers is of the greatest importance to us, and while disappointing, we hope you understand the decision.

We are continuing to look into our options for reconnecting with you and our dance community in new ways in the coming year, and are announcing the return of our Victorian Grand Ball on Saturday, November 26 2022. If our 30-plus years of balls have taught us nothing, it's that we will be back - and hope to see you there.


Southern California's grandest Victorian grand ball.

The Social Daunce Irregulars have been presenting victorian balls in Pasadena California for thirty years. We are dedicated to keeping the tradition of 19th Century ballroom dancing alive in our otherwise gray and pedestrian world, and providing our guests with an enjoyable and authentic victorian dance experience.

All of our music and all of our dances date from the 19th Century, and all of our music is provided by a live orchestra. We use no recorded music during our balls. 

To add to the ambiance, we suggest, but do not insist that our patrons wear the formal attire or military uniforms (any nation) of the 19th Century
