Tis the Site for a Lovely Evening

 

The 2015 Netherfield Ball promises to be a splendid evening of elegance, dance and music with tasty refreshment and excellent company.  We are pleased to announce the site for the evening's festivities is the lovely Fellowship Room in Oak Lawn United Methodist Church, 3014 Oak Lawn Avenue, Dallas. 
The Fellowship Room has beautiful stained glass windows, low stage and a hardwood floor most amenable to graceful dancing.  Lovely, comfortable sitting areas and library complete the venue.


Located just north of downtown Dallas, Oak Lawn United Methodist Church is in the middle of a variety of restaurants with convenient access to area hotels including the beautiful and historic Warwick Melrose directly across the street. 
Please check the Ball web page for links with listings of convenient area hotels and restaurants.

 

Mark June 20th, 2015 on your calendar and anticipate a splendid evening.  We look forward to welcoming you to the 2015 Netherfield Ball.




Registration for the Netherfield Ball will begin in March 2015.  Tickets are $40/person, $20/students.  Plan to register early as the event will be limited to the first 60 JASNA registrants and guests.

Can there ever be too much dancing?  We think not and in an effort to provide every advantage to Netherfield Ball attendees......


We are most excited to announce that Louise Siddons, the talented caller for the June 20th Netherfield Ball, has been secured to teach two English Country Dance workshops the morning of the Ball. 


These workshops are being held as part of the North Texas Chapter’s June with Jane event. 
Two sessions are planned - one from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. and the second 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  Three different dances will be taught per session encompassing a variety of steps, tunes and difficulty levels.   More information to come but rest assured you will be well prepared for a special evening of dance.  With Louise’s capable instruction, you might even anticipate dancing as elegantly as Elizabeth and Darcy.


The North Texas Traditional Dance Society has invited those interested to their monthly English Country dance sessions.    All prospective Ball attendees are strongly encouraged to attend as many dance sessions as possible before the 2015 Ball to assure the greatest dancing pleasure. 


Sessions are 8:00-11:00 p.m. with an early bird dance lesson at 7:30 p.m.  Admission is $9.00 per participant.  Location is First United Lutheran Church, 6202 Mockingbird Lane (east of Central Expressway).


Upcoming dance sessions:

Saturday – July 26th, August 23rd, September 27th, October 25th, November 22nd, December 27th.


                                                        


DANCE SHOE POLICY

For your comfort, safety and enjoyment, only dance shoes or flat shoes will be allowed at the Netherfield Ball. Please wear shoes that allow you to turn easily on a wooden floor, but are not too slippery.
Leather soles work well, as can suede, walking shoes, jazz shoes, and Oxford-style shoes. 

You are also welcome to bring more than one pair to test on the floor at the event.    


We appreciate your compliance for your enjoyment and safety as well as in consideration of our host venue.


 

Might we have the pleasure of this dance.....?
