As far as dress code is concerned, salsa is pretty informal. For party nights and special occasions people do get dressed up, especially the ladies. But when it was suggested some years ago that I organise a Salsa Ball, I really doubted it would work. Wrong again! The ladies loved the opportunity to really dress up, and the guys in their DJs provided them with an elegant backdrop.
Over the years I have suggested a change to the format – a salsa class, an alternative dance class, a dance demo, a band perhaps? But the resounding collective voice has been “ No! We just want to get dressed up and come and dance”. So be it. The format for the Salsa Ball is very simple – an opportunity to dump the jeans, T-shirts and trainers, to dress to impress with a theme of Dickie Bows and Diamantes - DJs and dickie bows for guys, posh-frocks for ladies.
The 18th Winter Salsa Ball
and the 8th at Beamish Hall Hotel.
The environment of the Monboucher Suite has proved very popular in previous years so we using it again this year.
A simple yet elegant occasion.
An opportunity to dump the jeans, T-shirts and trainers
and dress to impress.
Once again the theme was Dickie Bows and Diamantes.
Dickie bows for guys, posh-frocks and sparkles for ladies.
No classes or cabarets, simply a full night of socialising and dancing - mostly salsa of course, plus a sprinkling of other genres.
Do Gentlemen have to wear a Tuxedo or dinner suit? NO. The theme is Dickie Bows and Diamantes, a chance to really dress up for the evening. Lots of guys don’t have DJs, but they do have a black or white shirt. Ladies spend a lot of time, energy and money preparing for this night so gentlemen just need to treat themselves to a bow tie and be a suitably smart backdrop for the glamorous ladies, they'll appreciate it.
Can I pay at the door? NO. This is a ticket-only function.
Can I reserve tickets? NO. Due to problems doing this in the past I no longer reserve tickets. You pay me money (cash or bank transfer), I give you tickets. Seeemples!
