Formal Ball

Triad Anime Con is proud to present the Formal Ball! Featuring classical renditions of famous songs from serimes such as Final Fantasy, The Legend of Zelda, and Fullmetal Alchemist, the Formal Ball will be presenting a wide array of music for veteran ballroom dancers and congoers alike.
Please note that the Ball is a formal ballroom dance first and foremost. All attendees of the event must adhere to the dress code and rules of behavior as listed below.
