The Greenville Marriott is providing us with a special rate of $89.00 per night, plus tax. Please be sure to tell them you are coming to the Olde South Ball. You can call them at 864-297-0300 to make your reservation.
Period uniforms, period civilian dress, or modest modern formalwear (evening dresses for the ladies, suits or tuxes for the guys) are all acceptable attire. Gloves for ladies and gents alike would be in keeping with the 1860s traditions. Don't let your lack of a period costume stop you from coming...about a third of the folks will probably be in modern attire. Ladies, we suggest wearing low-heel shoes for comfortable dancing. Also, try to avoid gowns with a trailing train.
Never tried historic dancing? Don't fret! Come to a free dance practice earlier in the day!
When: 11:00-12:30, December 11
Where: FW Symmes Branch Library, 1508 Pelham Road, Greenville SC 29615 (About 5 minutes from the Marriott where the ball is held)
Even if you can't attend the practice, don't worry. The dance mistresses will walk everyone through each dance at the ball itself and will call the dances the entire time. You will not be the only beginner! Come and learn--you'll fall in love with the old-fashioned dances!
