Sakura Cosplay Ball
**THIS EVENT FILLS FAST. IF YOU EXIT THE BALL, ANOTHER PERSON WILL BE LET IN. YOU WILL NEED TO WAIT IN LINE TO ENTER AGAIN.*

Prior to the Ball, dance instruction will be provided. Formal dress is not required for this instructional event. We look forward to seeing everyone dressed to the nines!

Dress Code
As with any formal event, there is a dress code and some expected decorum.  Since this event’s main feature is music and dance, attendees should be sure to wear attire that they can move comfortably in.  Although the dress code will allow admittance to the Sakura Ball, not all forms of dress are appropriate. Attendees should not wear costume pieces or shoes that can easily come off. No props are allowed. Actual costume is not required, but the dress code must be adhered to.
