Who was that masked man?
Do you love to dance? Do you love dressing up in costumes? Then this is an event for you!

In July, the Annual Colonial Ball is happening at Morningside School of Arts. It is quite laid back in dance skill and in dress.
There will be glamorous, authentically dressed ladies and gentlemen from the Queensland Costumiers Guild and people from Dance Kaleidoscope in their Victorian costumes (beautiful but not quite as perfect as the costumiers - they do after all, have to perform not just look gorgeous).

There will also be people who hail from the Scottish, International, Danish and Bush Dance groups. There will also be people who rarely dance but love to dress up.
