Holiday Ball

Ashton Holiday Ball (18877 bytes)We want to welcome you all to our Holiday Ball. You all look so wonderful this evening. We have a lot of things planned for your entertainment. There will be dancing, carol singing, the burning of the Yule log and a menu that will suit anyone's taste. So make ready your dance cards and prepare to escort your partner onto the dance floor.

The order of dancing usually begins with a march, then a quadrille, a waltz, a polka, a gallop, interspersed with several round dances and ending with a march prior to supper. You can pick up your dance card for the evening below and it will differ slightly from the above. After supper, several dances will follow until the conclusion.
