The Flying Cloud Academy hosts a minimum of two elegant period balls per season. All are open the public. Beginning as well as experienced dancers, singles and couples, are welcome. Unless otherwise stated, evening festivities are held at the Wyoming Fine Arts Center, 322 Wyoming Ave., Cincinnati, OH. Period costume is admired, but not required. For those new to vintage dance, contemporary formal attire is also appropriate for balls. Leather-soled or soft-soled shoes are recommended. Our events feature period music by local orchestras. Light refreshments are served.
Tickets are available at the door. For Academy members and students with ID: $20.00 per person. For non-Academy members: $25.00 per person.
