Thank You All for Attending this Year!
This year our partial proceeds are going to benefit the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance.
The theme this year is a Circus Masquerade in the style of The Greatest Showman. We've brought in some new help to make this year even better!
We will be having a professional face painter, balloon twister, a beer and wine garden, food, DJ Chester Chomp, a fire dance show to help warm up the chilly October night, and much more! We will have our photo area set up again this year, and a professional photographer. We are now happy to offer a coat check for $1.
This is an 18+ event so be sure to bring your ID.
Limited VIP tickets are available for purchase so be sure to get yours quick! We have some great swag bags for VIPs featuring limited edition pint glasses!

GENERAL DANCE RULES
Guests must present a valid ID with their age on it (this is an 18+ event).
The following items are not permitted into the dance and will be confiscated: gum, glitter, perfume bottles.
Taikai Corporation is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Parking at the facilities is free, two small lots and street parking available.
The current style of dancing includes male to female front to back movement. While this may be acceptable in a club-like setting, Taikai Corporation has decided that is not appropriate in a formal setting. Front to back dancing is allowed as long as ladies do not bend over, put hands on their thighs or raise their dresses in any way, and men remain a respectful distance from the women and do not put their hands on the lady’s hips.
Possession and/or use of tobacco and controlled substances are prohibited. Any guest arriving at the event under the influence of (or in possession of) an illegal substance will not be admitted. Anyone allowing alcohol consumption by a minor will be removed and reported to the proper authorities.
