Time travel can be a little disorienting. If you’d like to get your bearings before arriving at the Steampunk Ball, arrive a few hours early and get some hints about blending in with the locals on the dance floor.

Optional dance workshop, 2-4pm, Wesley Hall, $8. Feel free to attend just the ball, but if you’d like to learn or brush up on some dances, or just want another two hours of dancing, come to the workshop.

Also, we will be practising the Chess Dance, where we all take on the roles of chess pieces on our giant chess board. All being well, we’ll be doing the dance during the evening at the ball.
