Holiday Ball

Happy HolidaysThe Holiday Ball is the annual celebration dance of the HATDS community. We usually decorate the hall, dance longer, take two breaks, and have more people and more food than our regular dances.

The food at the Ball is always a special treat, thanks to the many people who bring something special to share. We hope that you will be one of them this year! (Just remember to take your utensils and leftovers home with you.)

Gents at the Ball

We encourage you to wear something festive for the Holiday Ball. Some people choose to wear formal attire, but most do something simple such as adding a colorful or holiday-themed garnish to their outfit.

The HATDS Holiday Ball is usually held on the second Saturday of December, but sometimes changes. See the HATDS Schedule for the exact date and times.

The Ball is the only HATDS-sponsored contra dance in the month of December.

Socrates learned to dance when he was seventy because he felt that an essential part of himself had been neglected.
