Avalon Rising at PEERS Star Trek: The Trouble with Dancing with Tribbles Ball

June 1 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm


Join us on Deep Space Station K7 for some shore leave at a splendid science fiction/fantasy ball inspired by the Star Trek universe, with music by the amazing Avalon Rising. Venue for the ball is the Grand Ballroom and Salon of the historic Alameda Elks Lodge at 2255 Santa Clara Avenue in Alameda, California, a site perfect for a fantasy ball!

Star Trek-inspired costume, Steampunk attire, or modern evening dress is admired but not required. Science Fiction or Fantasy Costumes from any universe, past, present, or future, are welcome: whether you are Trekking boldly through the stars or Warring among them; whether you are a Star Fleet officer or cadet, a visiting Time Lord, a member of the Serenity crew, or a Guardian of the Galaxy, you are welcome! Creative costuming is encouraged – as long as you can dance in it. Beware of Tribbles, however. They may be adorable but they do get underfoot!

And the dance music will indeed be out of this world! After the 7pm vintage ballroom dance lesson, formal dancing follows from 8pm to midnight. The celebrated Renaissance Rock band Avalon Rising plays an evening of vintage ballroom dance music, Celtic and Celtic fusion rock, highly danceable science fiction and fantasy-inspired songs, and more! No partners required and all set dances will be taught and called. For those brave enough we’ll once again be calling a Klingon contradance – always an exhilarating experience. Light refreshments and our usual excellent No Host (cash) bar will be available to guests.

Dance Long and Prosper! !
