A Regency Ball is fun for adults and teenagers alike.
The dancing is romantic and can be quite flirtateous and it's fun to dress in the beautiful period costumes of the time. Teenagers are energetic and enjoy the more lively dances and often display remarkable creativity in making their costumes from vary simple materials based on films they have seen and illustrations in books.
I love organising a Regency Ball whether it is an 18th Birthday Party, a Golden Wedding Anniversary - or just a - party!
The best way to choose a caller is by recommendation. You might start by asking your local dance society. Failing that, RegencyDances.org can often find you a caller who can fit it into their schedule and live not too far away from you.
Your caller will be able to suggest dances suitable for the skill level of your guests. Unless your guests are experts, he or she should be prepared teach your guests by walking through the dances before each dance, as well as calling while the dancing is in progress. This, of course, takes more time.
As well as choosing the dances, the caller will normally procure the music or find suitable live musicians, whichever you prefer.
You might also wish the caller to arrange for a group of experienced dancers (normally eight) in Regency costume to do some demonstration dances, offer to dance with any guests without partners and generally assist your guests with the patterns of the dance if they get in a muddle.
The caller, dancers and musicians will each charge a fee, travel expenses and, if necessary, overnight accommodation so ask the caller to get all these prices agreed with you early.
