Full Moon Folk Ball

Full Moon Folk Ball

  • Dance
  • Community

A sold-out highlight from the 2021 Festival, the social dance event of the year returns.

Join us for a joyful evening that celebrates humanity and connection through exuberant live music and social dance traditions from around the world. Gathering is the very antithesis of the challenges that have confronted us over the past two years, so it’s no surprise that after prolonged distance, we crave expression through music and dance – together!

From pre-teens to the young at heart, easy to learn circle, contra, and partner dances will be cause for smiling and laughter, while also acknowledging the difficult times we have been through. This event affirms what’s truly essential to our being: contact and engagement with friends, family, and strangers, alike.

No experience or partner necessary. Just put on your best folk ball outfit and get ready for New Zealand dance icon Michael Parmenter to guide you through “a moment of shared magic” (Theatreview).

Early Bird tickets are available until 11:59pm 6 January 2022, or until allocation is exhausted.
