We would like to invite you to our upcoming event: 




Our traditional autumn dance workshop led by Katka Klementová (Chorea Historica, Societa di Danza), will once again be an opportunity to learn some new dances, refresh the older ones and enjoy an interesting evening at the ball.
The event takes place at the Governor's Palace (Místodržitelský palác) at Moravské náměstí 1a

DANCE WORKSHOP: 10:00 – 17:00

The workshop is suitable for both seasoned and inexperienced dancers, because the dances are relatively easy. Feel free to invite your friends and others interested in this period. A short repetition or explanation will take place before each dance at the ball so that those who have not attended the workshop can also join in.

Price of the workshop after registration and payment by bank transfer by 31  October is CZK 450, the price of the whole-day programme is 550,- CZK, tickets for the ball only are for CZK 250. After the deadline, the prices are 550,- for the workshop, 650 for the whole day and 300 for the Ball. 
The fee covers the tutor, PA, hall rental and musical accompaniment at the ball. Workshop participants have a discounted admission to the evening ball.
Registered participants who paid their fee will receive detailed information by e-mail.



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 :-)
