Get Your Groove on at the Dances

We have dances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, including the Fae Ball on Saturday. You can let our DJs know in advance if you have any fannish favorites or new dance mixes you’d like to hear by requesting a song. Otherwise they might not bring it with them. Prepare for the Fae Ball at our historical dance or floral head wreath-making workshops on Thursday.
