Hi, Lady Kathryn here, from SnS forum. I just love your old drawings and I am wondering if you found them online. They are just lovely and add
much to your website for this ball.

I was wondering who will do the calling for you and how many dances are you hoping to call for the evening?

How many people do you anticipate coming? I know with hoop skirts and many dancers- requires more space -- so I was just curious if you had a large venue.

I love checking out other locations for dances. I will be looking forward to seeing your photos--

yours truly, Lady Kathryn

Sorry I didn't see this comment sooner! Thanks for commenting! We do get our pictures online. Don't you love them?:)

Yes we do have a caller, and a live band. They are the 12th Louisiana String Band, with Master of the Ball, Mr. Walt Trisler. We are working with them on having a larger number of dances to call than we have had before, probably six or seven. The Grand March, The Gay Gordon, The Spanish Minuet, The Virginia Reel, The Patty Cake Polka, The Broom Waltz, etc...

We're hoping for at least 200 people, as the venue is very spacious. We can't wait!
