PHOTOS from last year
Put on your best costume and get ready to swing with all sorts of exciting characters! It's Swing Time's 13th Annual Halloween Costume Ball! The Ball starts with a one-of-a-kind dance lesson: Shim Sham (with Special Zombie Styling!) 7-8pm; no partner needed. Starting at 8pm, dance 'til the midnight hour to the Ultimate Halloween Swing/Dance Music Mix... that's right! — all Halloweeny music, all the way to midnight! The Halloween Costume Ball features a Costume Parade & Contest with $300+ worth of Cash & Prizes for the Best, Scariest, Hottest, Funniest, Swingiest, and Most Original costumes! The Ball features loads of Chocolate, Candy, & Trick-or-Treats; Door Prizes; a Zombie Shim Sham; a Steal Dance Mixer; plus Special Halloween Decor & Atmosphere! Gulfport Casino's vintage waterfront grand ballroom is smoke-free and provides a full bar and free parking. Just $8 admission includes EVERYTHING, and all ages are welcome! (Free passes and student specials will not be accepted for this special event.) Doors Open 6:45pm.
COSTUME CONTEST — This year's costume contest will include everyone in the ballroom...no formal entry required. Judges will roam the Gulfport Casino 7:00pm-9:30pm looking for the best costumes in each category. Be there before 9:30pm to be considered, and earlier is better. (To boost your chances, be out-and-about and visible, perhaps dancing!) Winners will be announced during the Costume Parade at 10:00pm.
Next BALLROOM FUSION NIGHT — Sunday January 11th 2015 — Ballroom Fusion Nights will resume on a once-a-month basis starting January 11th 2015...please mark your calendars. June-September 2014, we held Ballroom Fusion Nights once a month at the Gulfport Casino with great success. October 2014, we held them every week without much success. Apparently, the every-week schedule was too much for dancers...but it was worth a try! So we're going back to the once-a-month schedule starting in January. Thank-you to everyone who has attended these last five months, supporting the notion that partner dancing can be danced to modern music using a variety of dance styles. Special thanks goes to all you dancers who gave the weekly schedule a go. We look forward to seeing you once again with bigger and better events in 2015!
