Ball de Magnifique

After a full day of fun, meetups and laughter, jumping and food digesting,
You should also take your time to visit events, workshops or even resting.
Crafting, games, dealer room, cosplay, shows, there is so much to see and do,
If those events don’t interest your liking's, then maybe this event is for you.

J-Pop Foundation invites you to “Ball de Magnifique”,
Which fills your heart with joy, ballroom dancing and ‘musique’.
At this magical event, there won’t be any stress or games,
But full with dancing and dress up of gents and dames.
It will be held Friday the ninth of June, in the hall called Amazon,
You can dance until the full moon closes her eye and will be gone.
The magic starts at nine and ends at quarter to eleven,
But during this time, you could dance from the moon to heaven.

So, dance your heart out with ballroom or Latin music at this most excellent, majestic, magical ball,
Quickstep, Cha Cha, Tango, Rumba, Samba, Jive, English or Vienna Waltz, you’ll hear them all.
If dancing is not your thing, we would still like to see you appear,
Together with all the invitees, we will create a great atmosphere.
It makes no difference if thy is poor, rich, single, married or a bachelor,
As long you are formally dressed, this event will be most spectacular.
No matter if you are alone, with two or your group is a quartet,
Let us all make a night we will never ever forget.

Play rules:

Ball de Magnifigue is a formal event and has some rules to make it fun for those attending.

Dancing/standing zone:
Within the Amazon, there will be an inner “dancing” ring and an outer “standing” ring. Please respect the dancers by keeping the inner ring for those that want to dance. Those that stand still will be kindly asked to move towards the outer ring.

There will be many music styles playing from the Ballroom and Latin dancing world. You can expect Ballroom styles Quickstep, Tango, English and Vienna Waltz. But the Latin styles Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive and Samba as well. We will honour the Ballroom/Latin music with versions and remixes used in official classes and competitions.

Respect each other:
No matter who you are, what you are, what your status or preference is, be classy, keep this event classy, and make it a fun place for those that want to be in it.

- Picture moment:
In front of the entrance there will be a photo booth placed, where you can let your stunning outfit be photographed by one of our official photographers and will be placed online on a later date. Although it's not a must, it would be nice to see all the wonderful outfits captured. The booth is open from 20:00.
