Events for getting dressed up and going dancing?

disco ball club lightsM. emails:

I just really want an occasion to put on a glitzy dress and dance the night away. Are there any balls in the Capital region open to the community?

There are definitely events like this from time to time, many of them connected to charitable causes. For example, SPAC's annual winter ball is coming up in February. But we're wondering if there tends to be a season for these sorts of events.

So, got a suggestion for M.? Or maybe a make-your-own-fun and dress up idea? Please share.

The Bennington Young Professionals will host a dance party February 20 at the Masonic Hall in downtown Bennington. It's not in Albany, but we've got Trumastr Trimingham coming out to get us shakin' our rumps.

The Flurry Festival (used to be called "The Dance Flurry") is in Saratoga Springs in multiple venues for three days -- Friday, Feb. 12th through Sunday, Feb. 14th. Dances in many styles -- all with live bands. Plus other good entertainment for when your feet get tired.

Takk House held its Fall Ball (or Grown-up Prom) in November, and it was a great time - hopefully they'll have another this fall, if not before!

I am Dominican so I totally relate. I have thick curly hair (3c) and some of the hair professionals in this area do wonders with fine curly hair but have no idea what to do with thick (ethnic) hair. For the longest I had to take trips to NYC to get my hair done until I found Islenia (you can find her as "Hair by Islenia" in Facebook).She has been doing my hair for over 10 ears and she is excellent! ...
