Emperor Norton’s Ball

Some have said the pinnacle of a steampunk convention is its ball. Emperor Norton has made congenial arrangements for this time–traveling ball to feature all of the best dancing from Victorian times, the swing era, and an alternative today. On Saturday evening, Clockwork Alchemy will hold a ball of epic proportions with many hours of music and dancing!

Formal Dance

Saturday’s festivities will commence with that most Victorian of institutions the formal dance. Our Master of Ceremonies will instruct the Clockwork Alchemy DJ to play all of your ballroom favorites. We hope you are ready to waltz! (Ballroom dance lessons are available earlier in the day.)

Dress Code and Prerequisites

Creative attire is encouraged but not required for Emperor Norton’s Ball. This is an all-ages, all-experience-levels, and dressed-as-per-legal-in-Burlingame event.
