Formal Ball

Tekko Formal Ball Event

Ever thought Tekko should have a formal ball in addition to many other special music and dance events? Surprise! We heard you! We’re celebrating our expanded convention space by holding Tekko’s formal ball onsite, hosted by Trickssi.

You don’t have to know how to dance to enjoy the formal ball, however, the dance styles taught at lessons will be reflected in the playlist later in the evening. The dance lesson workshops will occur prior to the ball. No partner or special shoes are required and all ages are welcome.

The formal ball is FREE for badged attendees. Please note that there is a dress code and a code of etiquette that attendees will need to review prior to being admitted. Violating the dress code will result in being turned away at the door. Any questions about your choice of outfit should be directed to . Accommodations can also be made for attendees with mobility/medical needs; please direct those to .

Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to seeing you there!
