Events

It seems that there are more and more events every year. Not all are organised by us but all seem to be a wonderful opportunity to dance and enjoy pleasant company. Many of our participants speak English and there's also no problem in calling the dances in both Czech and English.

We would like to invite you to our upcoming event: 



After a year, we can meet again in the winter, which offers completely different possibilities than the warm months of the year. In Brno we are fortunate that an ice rink has been built in the city centre, right in front of the palace where our ballroom is located. Thus we can again try out how our ancestors may have felt when ice skating in period clothing. We will start the day at 4:00 pm with one hour of skating. It is possible to store things directly on site and also to rent skates.

After that we’ll go to the MorGal café, where we’ll warm up with afternoon tea and we'll talk and share - this year we'll focus on period hairdressing. Our experienced member can share a few tips and the most active among you can bring along your own hair decorations and together we can prepare for the ball.



REGENCY BALL - 19:30 - 23:30

The previous balls were successful beyond all expectations - most participants made ​​an effort and arrived in costume, and the result was a lovely experience in pleasant company, as if we indeed travelled in time. Thus we will again have the opportunity to enjoy historical and simple dances and costumes. Period dress is a pleasant thing, but if you are not able to get one, please do not worry and come anyway!

A short repetition or explanation will take place before each dance to help everyone join in. The atmosphere at the ball is friendly and relaxed and fellow dancers will always help you to fit in and enjoy the dancing, however inexperienced you may be. We are all there to enjoy it! :-)



Accommodation: Participants coming from afar who prefer a few hours of sleep after the ball before travelling back home can make use of accommodation facilities in the vicinity of the palace: the Hostel Jacob or the distinctive Hostel Mitte or via Couchsurfing


You can invite your friends using the event poster or via the FB event. If you have any practical questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you would like to know about our future events in time, you can sign up to receive information by e-mail


Ladies and Gentlemen, we are looking forward to meeting you :-)
