Spring Ball is May 3, 2014 at the MSU SUB.
Changes coming for next ball:
Absolute deadline for registrations will be Thurs. May 1 or 300 registrations, whichever comes first. You will need to either be on the updates email list or check this site regularly to see which comes first.
I have been aware in past balls as well as the most recent one that too many people are missing the practice. This really diminishes the fun for those who do know the dances and come prepared. I am also aware that Saturday morning doesn’t work for everyone so I will provide a week night practice the week of the ball for those who cannot make Saturday morning. Mandatory practice will be tracked. You must be at one of the two practices or be excused. I will have check in at practice. If you have not come to practice or been excused, you will not be allowed entrance into the ball. Thanks for your understanding in this.
Also, I had feedback of folks being uncharitable to those who were unskilled or unfamiliar with the dances. I cannot regulate kindness, but I will ask that people be charitable and patient. The ball should be a fun experience for everyone, including those who are there for the first time. With better practice protocol and a deliberate effort of kindness, I believe the next ball can be the best one ever!
As always, if you want timely information and pictures that I have taken after the ball, sign up for updates by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to the list.
