We are excited to announce 8 dance practice dates for the upcoming St. Andrew's Ball! Each dance practice will be held on a Wednesday from 7:30pm ~ 9:30pm at Aston Hall in the British Embassy in Seoul. Anyone from an absolute beginner to an advanced dancer is welcome!
NO ADMITTANCE UNLESS SIGNED UP! PLEASE BRING YOUR ID! The embassy guards will check your name with a list that we provided and admit you into the embassy grounds. Please confirm when you sign up that your name is written EXACTLY as it is written on your ID. If your name is incorrect, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you enter, cross the courtyard, go through the glass double doors (left side) and down the steps. Aston Hall is on your right at the bottom of the steps.
If you want to buy drinks at the bar, please bring 20,000 won or 40,000 won IN CASH to purchase a bar card at your first practice. You can use it to buy drinks during any of our practices until it runs out. They have a wide range of beers, gins and whiskies to enjoy!
What should I wear? We recommend wearing comfortable clothes and shoes.
How much are the dance practices? They are free!
Do I have to go to every practice? It's not mandatory to attend each practice, but as the saying goes "practice makes perfect." Is this class for beginners? Dancers of all levels are welcome! We teach many dances of varying levels. With some practice and effort, you can learn to do almost all of them by the time of the ball!
Do I have to buy tickets to the ball prior to attending the dance practices? No!
My name isn't on the list, what should I do? If it's at least 48 hours before, please fill out this form with the correct information!
Can I bring a friend or partner to the dance practices even if they won't attend the ball? Sure! Just make sure to fill out this form with their information at least 48 hours prior to practice.
Is there parking? There is some paid parking available at the Koreana Hotel (코리아나호텔) and outside the Seoul Anglican Church (대한성공회 서울주교좌성당). Can I get refreshments? Yes! Bar cards are available for 20,000 won or 40,000 won CASH ONLY. You can use a bar card to buy drinks each time you are at the bar until it is finished! The embassy has a wide range of beers, gins, and whiskies to enjoy.
