Formal Ball

Tekko Formal Ball Event

Tekko welcomes you to its second annual formal ball, hosted by our guest Trickssi (she/her)!

This year’s event will feature MORE THAN TWICE the dance floor and WATER STATIONS inside the room!

Before you put on your dancin’ shoes, please read the RULES and SOCIAL DANCE ETIQUETTE GUIDELINES below. Any questions about your choice of outfit should be directed to panels@teamtekko.us . Accommodations can also be made for attendees with mobility/medical needs; please direct those to ops@pittjcs.org and cc panels@teamtekko.us .

The formal ball will be in rooms 408-409 at 10 PM Friday. Lesson times TBA.

Lastly, remember: you DON’T have to be a dancer to enjoy the formal ball! Projectors will be displaying the names of suggested dances, but you can dance to the beat of your own drum as long as it follows safety rules!
