    Default Olde South Ball 2012--join us in December!

    Greetings all!

    Register now for the Fourth Annual Olde South Ball in Greenville, SC! Last year we sold out, so get your tickets now!

    What
    An evening of period dancing, delicious food, and good fun and fellowship! You won't want to miss this delightful evening!

    When
    Saturday, December 15, 2012, 5:30-11:30 p.m.

    Where
    Greenville Marriott, 1 Parkway East, Greenville, SC 29615.

    Cost
    $65.00 per person
    Single gentleman DISCOUNT: $45.00 per person. (Gentleman taking advantage of the discount are expected to dance with unattached ladies. Ladies, last year we had plenty of gents and no wallflowers!)

    The ticket price includes a full Southern supper (including an appetizer of fried green tomatoes!) and four wonderful hours of dancing. Pre-registration is required. You can register and pay online via PayPal at http://www.oldesouthball.com or you can download a mail-in registration form from the website.

    Lodging
    You can stay at the Greenville Marriott where the ball is being held for a special rate of $89.00 per night, plus tax. Be sure and tell them you are part of the Olde South Ball. You can call them at 864-297-0300 to make your reservation. A variety of other hotels are available in the area as well.

    Attire
    Period uniforms, period civilian dress or modern formalwear (evening dresses for the ladies, suits or tuxes for the guys) are all acceptable attire. Gloves for ladies and gents alike would be great! Don't let your lack of a period costume stop you from coming...every year we have folks in modern attire.

    Dance Practice
    Never tried period dancing? Don't sweat it! Come to a free dance practice earlier in the day!

    When: 11:00-12:30, December 15.
    Where: FW Symmes Branch Library, 1508 Pelham Road, Greenville SC 29615 (About 5 minutes from the Marriott where the ball is held)

    Even if you can't make the practice, don't sweat it. A walk-through will also be done for every dance at the ball itself and a caller will call the dances the entire time. You will not be the only beginner! Come and learn--you'll fall in love with the old-fashioned dances!

    Comments from other years
    *This was the first of many balls we hope to attend!! We had the greatest time! We cannot wait until this year's ball!

    *I quite thoroughly enjoyed the Olde South Christmas Ball! It was magnificent!

    *Everything was exceptional!!!!

    *This puts all the other balls we attended to shame. Once you have been to the Olde South Ball, you have been to the best.

    *It is something that I looked forward to all year, and I wasn't disappointed! Thank you!

    *No other ball we've attended has had so much extra put into it.

    *By far the best ball we've ever attended.

    I have to remember to read a little more slowly. "Gentlemen taking advantage of the discount are expected to dance with unattached ladies" With my cheap reading glasses, and reading quickly, I read it as "Gentlemen taking advantage of the discount are expected to dance with unattractive ladies" What a double-take I did.
