2019 Scholarship Ball

January 27 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$10

​​We are happy to announce the theme of our next FUN-Raising SIFDAC Scholarship Ball will be a Good Vibrations Beach Party!

An indoor Beach Party will be held the first hour from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. (indoors in winter to help keep us warm) with a picnic-style pot luck, games, and a genuine sing-along (including non-dance songs). ​Then the Dance Party will be from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.

Each year the SIFDAC sponsors a Scholaship Ball and raises funds for dance scholarships to attend to folk dance camps through donations from the Scholarship Ball event. Eligible candidates for scholarships are selected based on procedures and requirements determined by SIFDAC. ​

Please help spread the word and start gathering ideas for your favorite songs and dances to request, and to whom you might like to send “good vibrations” via dedications. Thank you for your support in helping local dancers attend folk dance camps via our SIFDAC scholarships!

How to Request Submit Dance Requests, Song Requests, and Dedications

Dance Requests

  • Each requested dance (other than a set dance that needs to be briefed) will be $10.
  • Each set dance that needs to be briefed will be $15.
  • There will be a maximum of 60 dances. Please note that, as we did last year, if we don’t get 6 dancers out on the floor, we will proceed to the next dance, so we can keep the party moving.
  • Each individual is limited to requesting 2 dances.
  • Each SIFDAC club is limited to requesting 4 dances.

Sing-along Song Requests

New this year! Requests for sing-along songs are also $10 each, limited to one request per individual or club. We anticipate only having time for 12 songs…so be the first on your block to make a request to be sure it is included in the program.

Dance and/or Sing-along Dedications

Also new this year: Songs and dances may be dedicated! Submit your dedication, for an additional $10 pledge, along with your request. An example of a dedication is, “Dances of the World dedicates Salty Dog Rag to Joya with love”. Each dedication will be announced before the song or dance, posted on the SIFDAC website and posted on the wall at the hall.

How to Make Your Requests and Dedications

Donor pledges will begin November 1, 2018. Only email requests will be honored. Remember! First come, first served!!
Send your requests and dedications along with your contact information to Toba Goddard.
