COSTUME IDEAS & CONTEST

This years gala was designed with simple and easy costuming in mind! We love extravagant costumes, but you can still create something awesome and danceable! Some ideas may be; Tourists, Explorers, Captains, Sailors, Pilots, Stuartest, Scuba Divers, and Cowboys & Indians. We would LOVE to see some small groups of different cultures such as French, African, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese. Use your imagination and have fun – but remember… DANCEABLE!
