    Each year we offer our dancers a "last chance" session to become familiar with the dances that we will be doing at the Victory Ball by hosting a "Crash Course" on the afternoon of the ball.  Led by our dance master, Mr. Charles Steplively, we will be going over the figures for most of the dances that will be performed that evening.  This year's class will be held in the Country Club of Petersburg ballroom at 1:00PM  and will last approximately two hours.  There is no additional cost for the "crash course" for those who are registered for the ball.   Dress is casual.  For more information about the ball and to purchase tickets, be sure to visit the Victory Ball Main Page.
