And we danced...

Our popular fancy dance is returning: The Atlantis Ball! The Dance will be tentatively held Saturday from 7:30 – 10:30 PM and feature amazing views of the bay area from our vantage point on the 21st floor of the Oakland Marriott!

Dress Code

Our dress code is semi-formal. Wear an outfit that is affordable or all-out fancy! Be sure to dress to impress! We want to keep the event traditional and will be enforcing the following rules:

  • Slacks, dress pants, business attire type pants, etc
  • Button down shirt (short-sleeve is okay!) or blouse
  • Skirt or dress (make sure it's no shorter than "fingertip" length). Length may be above the knee, but keep it classy!
  • Any shoes (as long it protects the feet for dancing; shoes should be comfortable for safety reasons and for long periods of dance time)
  • Cosplays are allowed but required to meet the dress code
If you have any questions regarding the dress code feel free to inquire at or on our Facebook event page (coming soon!)

Tips for finding an outfit that meets the requirements:
  • Outfit previously worn at semi-formal dances such as high school dances or prom. Ask friends if they have a spare outfit that they have worn at a wedding, prom, or any other formal or semi-formal event.
  • Go to an affordable shopping store such as Target, Ross, Marshall, etc.
  • Find and cosplay a character that meets the formal attire requirements (e.g. Princess Peach is considered formal). Check our Facebook event page (coming soon!) for additional examples!
  • Commission someone to create a certain character outfit that follows the policies.
  • Rent clothes that meet the requirements.
